For twenty-six years he has lived in shame due to the reported actions of his dead father. When Tom Donovan was four, apparently his dad's best friend Holt Hudson shot Tom's father six times. A few days later, his dad died in Tom's arms alone in the Everglades. Holt insisted that his best friend was a cat burglar who assaulted his wife. The police believed Holt, but Tom knows that wealth can buy plenty of silence and is positive that his godfather spread the money around.

Tom sees private investigator Angel Devlin meeting with Holt. Afterward he follows her, which she observes. They talk and he pleads with her to help him, but she warns him to stay away from Holt as he is sponsoring an Alzheimer's fundraiser at his home. As Tom continues to seek the truth, he and Angel begin to fall in love, but his obsession overrides his heart so any future relationship seems impossible.
