From the moment he saw the girl in the snowstorm, Flynn had less than an hour to live. But he'll remember his last fifty minutes long after he's dead. As an investigator for Suffolk County Child Protective Services, Flynn has seen more than his share of misery, but nothing could prepare him for the nightmare inside the Shepards' million-dollar Long Island home. In less than an hour, that nightmare will send him plunging into a frozen harbor-and awaken him to a reality even more terrifying. They've nicknamed Flynn "The Miracle Man" because few have ever been resuscitated after being dead so long. But a determined homicide detective and a beautiful, inquisitive reporter have questions about what really happened at the Shepard house-and why the people around Flynn are suddenly being murdered. Flynn has questions of his own, especially when one of the victims dies while handing him a note: "This is all your fault." Flynn has returned from the Midnight Road-and someone wants to send him back.

Professional reviews

"The main character, Flynn's, passion for film noir gives narrator Donald Corren a splendid base for his storytelling, ably pulling listeners along the twists of this mystery. After a home inspection that reveals an unsuitable environment, the child services investigator is in a car accident--and dies for 30 minutes before being brought back to life by an EMT. As Flynn tries to untangle family secrets involving an innocent child and a murderous uncle, Corren moves deftly from dark humor to car chases to romance. A unique aspect of the story is that Flynn is also haunted by the bulldog in the other car, Zero, who dies and stays dead after the accident and who provides Corren with the opportunity for a wry, wonderful characterization.
