Grace Lawson’s life finally seemed to be stable and happy. She had a great husband Jack and her two wonderful kids Emma, 8, and Max, 6. She met Jack in Paris when while she was studying abroad, they fell in love almost instantly. Everything was looking up for Grace; you could barely even see her limp anymore. You see, Grace Lawson’s life was not a happy one, she had experienced many tragedies. But one particular incident, that had occurred 15 years before the story takes place, changed Grace’s life forever.
As a teenager, Grace loved being deafened at rock and roll concerts as much as anyone. She had no way of knowing that attending the Jimmy X concert would be one of the biggest mistakes of her life. The young Grace stood by the exit gates next to the stage, the concert was delayed, and the crowd was rowdy. Gunshots rang out through the chaos and disaster struck. Everything turned to mayhem, and a stampede was created, the gates were rushed. Eighteen people died in the horrid event that the media dubbed “the Boston Massacre”. But Grace survived, she had become “Boston’s Angel” and when in the hospital met many parents of children that were lost in the massacre, one of these parents being the mobster Carl Vespa.
But that was all over now, Vespa kept in touch by calling every once in a while but other then that it all ended fifteen years earlier. But then she found something that turned her world upside-down. It was an innocent enough artifact, just misplaced. Grace had picked up a packet of pictures recently developed at the Photo mat and discovered a photo that appeared to be very old, definitely not taken by her or using her digital camera. It was a picture of five people, three women and two men who looked about college student age. The woman, or girl, in the center of the picture had a big white X drawn over her face. But the most peculiar thing about the strange photo was that one of the men in the picture had a strikingly close resemblance to Jack. Even more peculiar is that when Jack sees the picture, he gets in his car and drives away from home without a word. And maybe that was the even that changed Grace’s life more than the Boston Massacre.
Turns out that what Grace discovered was more then just a picture, it revealed something that went deeper then she could have ever imagined. Her husband Jack had been in a band called Allaw and the five people in the photo were the band members. And all the other members were missing or dead. Then Jack ends up being kidnapped by a hired assassin Eric Wu. Eric Wu is an extremely dangerous man and is making threats about Grace’s children. Even with the help of Carl Vespa, Grace has a hard time believing that she will ever see her husband alive again.
