After finally rescuing his beloved Kate from the clutches of his twisted cousin, Tony has spent the last seven months running from his demons, only to find himself in a drunken stupor. The thought of her carrying Masimo’s baby plagues his very soul, and yet every day he spends without Kate is sheer torture. Finally resolved to drown his sorrows in a bottomless bottle of whiskey, Tony has taken up residence in a seedy hotel room in downtown San Diego. He has all but given up hope on everything and everyone in his life when his best friend and security expert Jasper arrives to inform him that all is not as it seems. Now Tony must make both the physical and emotional journey back to Kate, beg for forgiveness, and pray that the life he always dreamed of slips through his fingers.
