A Better Time

Mitchell Becker’s wild and destructive lifestyle had cost him a marriage, a family, and a home. He had two choices, pull himself out of the ashes of his miserable existence – or die.

One year later, still shaky and vulnerable, he makes two important trips, the first to his beloved and reluctant ex-wife, and the second to his mother’s gravesite. While begging for forgiveness for the second time that day, he notices a strange woman lurking the grounds. She appears lost and so out of place in the twenty-first century. Becker writes her off as just another freak encounter and returns home.

But when the police show up at Becker’s door to arrest him for the murder of his ex-wife, he finds that the only one who can confirm his alibi for the time of the murder is the strange cemetery girl.

While Becker fights for his innocence, Carol Freeman has her hands full with the most difficult patient in Higher Ground Recovery’s history. Gary Burnett has a mind so dark and terrifying, he is eventually turned over to a place with bars – but not before wreaking havoc on the entire staff.

As a trial begins, a corrupt District Attorney performs every rabbit out of the hat trick to guarantee a guilty verdict. Becker’s co-counsel work desperately to reveal the D.A’s smoke and mirror show. And, while Becker’s only alibi is unable to help him in the conventional sense, she offers him a solution no one ever thought possible.
