SUNDAY NIGHT FEARS—INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY—
Sam Halloran is anxious to prove himself at his new firm. But when his audit on a major client reveals massive fraud, he’s left with a terrible choice. He can either keep quiet and preserve his livelihood or disclose his findings and put his wife and children's future in jeopardy....
As Sam struggles with the decision and confronts the pain of his past, the company's smart, sexy accounting manager becomes both ally and temptation.

That's when the walls start to close in....
