Grady Lind left his old life behind when he married Carolyn and had a daughter. He’s been able to avoid violence for sometime now, and he has never been happier.
Unfortunately for Grady, his wife asks him to help the young Nancy McQuay, and he reluctantly agrees. Hopefully that won’t be a decision he soon regrets.
