Having come of age on the mob-controlled streets of 1960’s South Philly, Detective Pete Coletti learned early on to walk the fine line between cops and criminals, a skill that served him well during his eighteen years in homicide. Now nearing the end of his illustrious career, the highly decorated Coletti seems to be on the top of his world. But everything is not what it seems. Coletti is harboring a terrible secret. His most famous arrest was based on a lie, and soon the priest he imprisoned for a decade-old murder known as The Confessional Killings, will be put to death. To set everything right and stop the execution he set in motion over ten years ago, Coletti must catch the real killer. The killer that has been out there waiting for him.

Father O’Reilly always walked with purpose to hear confession. He thought it was his most important duty as a priest.
