Fifteen-year-old Solomon Stern was the perfect teenager; an ideal student, an outstanding athlete, and a valued friend. But when Solomon ended his life with a hangman's noose, he shattered every dream that Joe and Martha Stern held dear. His legacy; guilt to a father who didn't know his own son...despair to a mother who loved him too well. The foster child was a second chance for the Sterns - Jonathan, a boy of Solomon's age, intelligent and charming. But there were other similarities between Jonathan and the dead son. Disturbing similarities. And there was also something different about Jonathan...something chilling. Something deadly.
