This is the fifth ebook in the Henry Wright Mystery Series. Henry is a retired chief of police from a small town in northern Wisconsin.
He is living quietly in Palm Springs in a mid-century home with his roommate Charles Knightly.
Henry is just about to return to Palm Springs from a wonderful mini-vacation at his girlfriend Gloria's home in California's Sierra Nevada Gold Country when his friend Wayne Johnson calls him to say his friend and roommate Charles Knightly III has been severely injured by a hit-and-run driver and is in a coma in Desert Hospital.
Henry and Gloria rush home to be with Charles and help Wayne figure out if this was an accident or did someone set out to murder Charles?
What is in Charles' past that someone now wants him dead?
