SINS OF TWO FATHERS by DENIS HAMILL
Hank Tobin had it all: a popular column in a New York
newspaper, a Pulitzer prize, and wealth that enabled him to
live his boyhood dreams. But his world is shattered when
his son -- himself an aspiring journalist -- follows an
anonymous tip to a can't-miss front-page story: the
firebombing of a Brooklyn mosque. Hank's son is accused of
the crime, arrested, and thrown into prison. Hank soon
discovers that his son was framed by a man who has been
waiting a decade to have his revenge.
Sitting in a seedy New York bar ten years earlier, Hank

event in the life of the columnist, a life-altering event
for the janitor and his family.
Hank's life is in ruins. Divorced from his wife -- whom he
desperately wants back -- and estranged by his daughter,
Hank has lost his reputation, his career, and his family.
To save his son from a long prison sentence, Hank must
confront the vengeful man whose life he once carelessly
