From the moment he saw the girl in the snowstorm, Flynn had less than an hour to live. But he ll remember his last fifty minutes long after he's dead. As an investigator for Suffolk County Child Protective Services, Flynn has seen more than his share of misery, but nothing could prepare him for the nightmare inside the Shepards million-dollar Long Island home. In less than an hour, that nightmare will send him plunging into a frozen harbor and awaken him to a reality even more terrifying.
They ve nicknamed Flynn The Miracle Man because few have ever been resuscitated after being dead so long. But a determined homicide detective and a beautiful, inquisitive reporter have questions about what really happened at the Shepard house and why the people around Flynn are suddenly being murdered. Flynn has questions of his own, especially when one of the victims dies while handing him a note: THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT. Flynn has returned from the Midnight Road and someone wants to send him back.
