Mike Danton puts his life back together after being released from prison.  Yet, he still claims that David Frost was not his intended target.  He adamantly insists that he had hired a hit man with his girlfriend Katie to kill his father Steve Jefferson.  Despite the fact that he has been estranged from his family for years, and there was no reason to think his father would be coming after him.  The clutches of his mentor David Frost are so powerful that Mike needed a way to claim his life back...but did he really order the hit on David Frost?
