Accompanying him on this journey are childhood best friends Miguel Rodriguez and Corey Andrews. Miguel, like James, is attending Carrington University to get his masters while Corey’s sole focus is his impending nuptials to his college sweetheart, Amanda Lancaster. However, life takes a dark and tragic turn for Corey when he enters Amanda’s apartment and finds her lifeless bloody sprawled on her kitchen floor. He is devastated by her murder but is unable to properly grieve when the newly appointed sheriff, Jeffrey Murphy, eyes him as the prime suspect. James decides the best course of action is to aid local law enforcement in their search for Amanda’s killer. Through unwavering faith and persistence, James is determined to solve this murder despite the obstacles he might face.
