“Occam's razor. It states - that the simplest explanation is usually the right one.”
“It’s the devil—he gets ahold of you. He pokes and prods until he finds your weakness and then, see, he wiggles right through your skin and gets into your bloodstream. Could be through drink. Could be through gambling. Could be through a virus, like cancer or something. Or the devil could be in the smack, the rock, the meth, whatever. It’s all the devil in different forms.”

"The richer and denser the memory of an event-for example, during moments when you are terrified-the longer you perceive that event lasted. This phenomenon also explains why times seems to go faster as you age. When you're a child, experiences are new and so your memories are fresh and intense-so again time seems to slow down. As you grow older, especially when you are stuck in a routine, very few new or vibrant memories are being laid and so time flies by."

When their oldest daughter Paige entered college, her life took a wrong turn when she got involved with a drug dealer and abusive boyfriend. Simon and Ingrid were forced to enter the dark world of drugs, dealers, and criminals to find and save their daughter. However, every time they find a new piece of information, it would lead to another puzzle piece that doesn’t get them any closer. Meanwhile a private investigator, Elena Ramirez, is looking for a missing son of a wealthy businessman. When her path collides with that of Simon’s, they find themselves in danger and Greene’s family under suspicion for a murder.
