At a film festival in a small mid-western city, runaway teenager Lilly Lessard has shown up looking for old-boy, con man Bobby Alvin.
They used to be close, ‘Eating dinner together in nice restaurants all over town,’ as Detective Susan Davis puts it, but something went wrong. He’s been avoiding her ever since her last birthday. Detective Davis reckons it’s because she turned seventeen. She knows that Bobby likes them young. Because Davis has been on his case for years, following him through an acquitted murder trial, watching him sending young girls around the country. She knows he’s as guilty as sin and she’s just waiting for the right pieces to fall into place.
Lilly knows he’s no good too, desperate, dangerous and greedy to boot, but that doesn’t matter. He owes her money and has promises she expects to be kept.
But the closer she gets to Bobby, the closer Davis gets to them both. They’re all playing their hands close to their chests and everyone’s got secrets to hide.
But Lilly’s about to find out, the worst type of secret its the one you keep from yourself.
