Though a fifty-five-year-old man, "Jayboy" Calvin has the emotional and intellectual bearing of an eight year old. Elayna Evans--owner of a successful catalog import business--is a lifelong friend, and Jayboy's mentor and employer. When evil creeps into their small town of Frankfort, Kentucky, leaving one person dead--the victim of a brutal stabbing--Jayboy becomes the prime suspect. But the murderer seems convinced that the victim left incriminating evidence with Elayna--evidence the killer wants desperately to recover. Running for her life, Elayna must answer the question she's long avoided: What if an assassin's knife thrusts her into eternity unprepared?
