about this item

When thirty-six-year-old James Baker, a Detective Seargant for the NYPD, finds himself at a dangerous crossroads?facing suspension or even the end of his career?he agrees, under great duress, to an unorthodox therapy: being the acting legal guardian of a convicted juvenile offender. Banished, like an outcast, to the high school where the teen will be a student, he’ll be overseeing security?far away from the general criminal element.

But seventeen-year-old Micki Reilly is not what he expected: She’s female, far more violent, and claims to have no memory of her past. Cynical, Baker is determined to be rid of her as quickly as possible while she sees him as her only chance. Remaining together out of necessity, they battle each other on every level, the shrouded bridge between them rarely seen and often missed. But the stakes are far higher than what they first appear, leaving both lives in jeopardy?until a tragic decision finally rips away the veil.

Set against the backdrop of the 1970s, a time of pulsating change and social upheaval, Falling Back to One is the story of a man’s struggle for salvation and the fragile thread of hope he alone offers a severely abused child. With complex, sharply drawn characters that are flawed, human, and heartbreakingly real, an unusual relationship unfolds, winding its way through unique twists and turns to an unforgettable conclusion.
