The book is inspired by a photograph that stunned the nation. Ellis Reed is a struggling reporter who comes across a house with a sign on the porch that reads ” 2 Children For Sale”. He snaps a picture of it with no intention of publishing, but it ends up being his big break. However, the publication of the photo leads to multiple unintended consequences and Reed will need to team up with a woman named Lillian Palmer to right some wrongs.

McMorris also wrote The Edge of Lost. This book tells a dual story of a young man who decides to leave his home in Ireland to head to America where he’ll attempt to find his true father and a young girl who has gone missing on the prison island of Alcatraz. The young girl is the daughter of a prison guard and only a bankrobber named Tommy knows where she might be. While in the past, Shan dreams of leaving his poor life in Ireland behind for a trip to America.
