When Nick Bertetto, stay-at-home dad and former investigative reporter, almost hits a homeless man wandering down a highway, he stops to help. While unconscious, the man mumbles, "Cahill wore red." It seems nearly impossible to Nick that the man could know anything about the recent disappearance of State Representative Calvin Cahill, but with Cahill's name prominently in the news, Nick takes a special interest in the homeless man, Elijah Smith. He begins to investigate what Smith says "angels" whisper to him about Cahill. Soon Nick has an assignment to work with his longtime friend, reporter Ryan Lockridge, on the Cahill story. It soon becomes clear that someone doesn't like the progress Nick and Ryan make, as Nick is beaten up and threatened. By the time they figure out that the disappearance is related to gambling legislation, dead bodies are turning up. As Nick struggles to keep the uglier details from his family, the story takes a new twist. Someone he knows - intimately - disappears, giving Nick very little time to find out who wanted Calvin Cahill dead and whether Eli's angels can be trusted.
