Confronting an intruder in his home in Florida, Martin Lovett ultimately discovers that the intruder was the father of a child who had been kidnapped and killed thirty years earlier in Oklahoma. Because of some sketchy evidence that Martin was possibly involved with that crime, the father was apparently seeking vengeance, or perhaps just answers.
The details of this and other crimes Martin was involved in during his lifetime are told in flashback.
Growing up during the war years of the forties, Marty lived through
some pretty gritty times, leaving school at an early age, seeking adventure, finding trouble instead.
In the meantime, Marty is plagued with memories of his past life. The deception of keeping his criminal activities from his wife is especially difficult.
The present day courts finally resolve the issue with Martin Lovett.
