Imagine your 14-year-old daughter goes to a neighborhood party and returns bloody and semi-conscious.

That’s what happened to Brandi Welch and her father wants justice.

The party was at the home of the most prominent attorney in Brookfield. Brandi’s father will do what it takes to get justice. One catch—he won’t go to the police until he has evidence to prove guilt.

Because Mac MacKenna, Blackstone Academy’s School Marshal, has a good-guy reputation and sees the kids daily, Scott Welch, Brandi’s father, asks Mac to help him identify the assailant.

After an exciting 20-year career in the U.S. Air Force Special Operations unit known as Pararescue, Mac retired and returned to his hometown of Brookfield. Pararescuemen specialize in unconventional rescue and recovery in both humanitarian and combat situations. They’re deployed to extract, medically treat and stabilize injured soldiers. A combat search and rescue squad.

Blackstone Academy is a public school in an affluent neighborhood. To keep the school exclusive for their children, parents make generous annual donations.

Mac doesn’t want to get involved with Scott but can’t say no to the distraught father. Mac’s not married and doesn’t have children, but he’d also seek justice if the same thing happened to one of his nieces.

Follow Mac as he checks names off the suspect list until there’s only one name left.
