In the Radiant City

Twenty years ago in the town of Medina, Kentucky, seventeen-year old Michael Yurley committed an unthinkable murder. His younger brother, Andrew, was the only witness to the crime and his testimony sent Michael to prison for life. The incident tore their family apart. As Michael’s case comes up for re-sentencing, Andrew is summoned back to the place and people he once fled, to face the stigma that has haunted his family for twenty years.
