When life becomes unbearable to lawyer Aiden Benjamin Conway, the world goes white. Everything. People, landscapes, a cup of coffee. This delusion is his penance, punishment for a day spent helping his father remodel his dead sister’s nursery when he was a child. It was the summer he first saw the cracks in his parents’ marriage, when his mother kept a vigil over that room as if her daughter might one day return. His delusion isn’t the only thing he needs to escape. He is ensnared in a federal corruption investigation that could end his career and send him to jail for years. The simple act of trying to live a normal life turns his world into a giant circle, pushing him together with people who know more about his broken childhood than he does. Their secrets, along with his own, transform his mind into a white hot prison of madness.
