The Ride Home
A reporter covers the crime he committed.
Riding home one night, reporter Mark Wagner is harassed and knocked off his bicycle by three men in an SUV. Chased into a park, he is attacked by one of them with a knife. Cornered, he passes up a chance to run, and defends himself with his bike lock, seriously injuring his attacker before fleeing.
In the morning, his editor calls and asks him to investigate a report of violence in the park. As the days pass, Mark moves deeper into the life of the person he injured.
Mark keeps his secret from his wife, Marit, a county prosecutor who becomes involved in the case, and their conflicting roles drive them to diverging ends.
