(From the publisher):
There is little love in eight-year-old Tom Bedford's life. His parents are old and remote, and the boarding school they've sent him to bristles with bullies and sadistic staff. The only comfort he gets is from his fantasy world of cowboy and Indians. But when his sister, Diane, falls in love with one of his idols, the suave TV cowboy, Ray Montane, Tom's existence is transformed. They move to Hollywood and all his dreams seem to come true. Soon, however, the sinister side of Tinseltown cases its shadow and a shocking act of violence changes their lives forever.
What happened all those years ago remains a secret that corrodes Tom's life and wrecks his marriage. Only when his estranged son, a US Marine, is charged with murder do the events resurface, forcing Tom to confront his demons. As he struggles to save his son's life, he will learn the true meaning of bravery.
