224 Pages | 4.24" x 6.73" | Ages 12 & Up

Harley slides the password into the slot. When the red light turns green he punches in a six-digit code. It better be right. If it's not...When Harley's father dies in a car accident in which Harley was the driver, he's left to cope with the guilt of causing his father's death. But as Harley begins to piece together fragments of memories about the accident, he realizes that maybe it wasn't an accident after all. Elements from Shakespeare's Hamlet tease their way into the story, as Harley begins to suspect that his father's business partner - now married to his mother - may have been responsible.
