When a beautiful and profoundly autistic boy named Hector is found hideously throat-cut in a Bronx row house, it’s his father, a callous and deceitful widower with gang ties, who emerges as the prime suspect. Reluctantly catching the case is A.D.A. Alex Greco, himself the wounded father of an autistic son who died at age three. A relative newcomer to the challenging and often brutal world of New York’s toughest borough, Alex has been excelling in this environment for two years, rebuilding his shattered personal life and finding love again with a brilliant forensic psychologist, Dr. Nikki Jaynes. But Alex guards a horrific secret from his own past, and prosecuting Hector’s case will do more than re-open old wounds—it may tear apart his present life as well.

Roger Canaff is a widely known child protection and anti-violence against women advocate, legal expert, author and public speaker.

With almost 20 years experience, he has prosecuted and consulted on cases involving sexual and physical abuse against children and adolescents, and also sexual assault against adults, the elderly and persons with disabilities.

Mr. Canaff continues to provide training and speak publicly to other attorneys, medical experts, law enforcement officers, victim advocates and the public on all issues related to the investigation and prosecution of child abuse and sexual assault. He comments on special victims issues for major networks, and has been featured in two multi-media resource tools.
