But when Allieís father asks an unfathomable favour, Cohenís decision to help him sets off a chain reaction of irrevocable events that starts with one manís untimely death, and ends in Cohenís incarceration. His guilt or innocence is left up to the reader to judge. In the aftermath of his actions, Allie will reveal a secret of her own.
