Summary
"During a terrible heat wave in 1991, nine-year-old Anton is locked in an apartment alone for seven days without electricity. He breaks a window to climb out and the police find him covered in blood. His mother is found nearby in a crack house, where her drug dealer raped her and kept her high. A Harvard-educated senator's son, Judge David Coleman is desperate to have a child in the house again after the tragic death of his teenage son. He uses his connections to keep his foster son, Anton--with devastating consequences in the years to come"--Back cover
