After a similar case is discovered involving a former friend of the Wall Street trader who played on the same high school football team almost twenty years earlier, Martelli is convinced he is dealing with someone bent on revenge. But the two teammates who ostensibly committed suicide were part of an elite three-man squad known as The Flying Horsemen. This convinces Martelli there will be a third victim.

"I cannot remember a time in the past decade when I picked up a mystery/thriller and was so surprised." ~ Russell D. James for Hollywood Book Review
"As a lawyer, it’s always been disconcerting how Cohen sets himself up as judge, jury, and executioner, but I know his readers absolutely relish the idea." ~ Kerry Donahue, Esq.
"This novel, ripped from the headlines, should serve as a wakeup call to what increasingly appears to be an epidemic of child abuse, teenage rape, and teen suicide." ~ Susan Violante, Author of Innocent War: Behind An Immigrant’s Past, Susan's Talk Radio blog
