Beaumont is learning to enjoy retirement: doing morning crossword puzzles by a roaring fireplace; playing frisbee with his new dog; having quiet lunches with his still working wife. But then his past comes calling: when a long ago acquaintance shows up on Beau’s doorstep with a newborn infant in hand, Beau finds himself faced with an investigation that  will turn his own life upside down.
