Summary:
Hutch Van Buren is a carefree fifteen-year-old searching for arrowheads in a small industrial town in Ohio with his three closest friends when an altercation between the comrades and Petey Sanchez, a troubled seventeen-year-old, leads to Petey's accidential death. Together, Hutch and his friends become ensnared in a web of secrets and moral dilemmas. One-eyed Jack, a local never do well and child molester, goes to prison for the crime while the boys keep their pact of silence, each shouldering the burden of truth in his own way as he attempts to leave the past behind. Thirty-three years later, Van Buren is the prosecuting attorney in Summit County, Ohio, and a candidate for state attorney general when he learns that he and his boyhood friends weren't the only ones keeping a secret about Petey's death. One-eyed Jack has been released from prison and facing new charges as a sex offender, attempts to backmail Van Buren in exchange for his continued silence. Van Burden must decide between his political career and the duty of the office he has sworn to uphold. With the clock ticking, Van Buren has a week to seek out his boyhood friends and search his soul while he sorts out three decades of deceit he helped create.
