By Paul Cleave
A blind teenager receives a corneal donation and begins to see and feel memories from their previous owner-a homicide detective who was also his father.
Joshua is convinced there is a family curse. It's taken loved ones from him, it's robbed him of his eyesight, and it's the reason why his father is killed while investigating the homicide of a young woman.
Then Joshua is handed an opportunity he can't refuse: an operation that will allow him to see the world through his father's eyes. As Joshua navigates a world of sight, he gets glimpses of what these eyes might have witnessed in their previous life. What exactly was his dad up to in his role as a police officer?
There are consequences to the secret life his father was living, including the wrath of a man hell bent on killing, a man who is drawing closer and closer to Joshua.
Joshua soon discovers that there is a world darker than the one he has emerged from...
