How far would you go to save your child? Would you break the law? Endanger your life? Harm others?

Because of her medical training, Dr. Emma Sweeney understands the diagnosis. Her five-year-old son, Josh, has a deadly form of leukemia. Without an experimental treatment which her insurance will not pay for, Josh’s chances for survival are grim.

Her husband, Detective Nate Sweeney, bucks for a promotion by taking on an investigation into opioid deaths involving fentanyl. Even if he earns the promotion, it will come too late and be too little money to save Josh.

Emma makes a fateful decision. With access to prescription pads from her hospital, she can forge orders for valuable opioids. Her former high school boyfriend and her estranged brother, both with a history of illegal drugs, can sell the drugs and raise enough money to pay for Josh’s needed treatments. The biggest wrinkle in the plan is Nate’s investigation may lead him straight to his own wife.
