Zac Hunter’s not your all-American hero – he’s a good guy to have in the trenches, but a bad guy to have on your case. He’s just lost the only job he ever wanted, having been kicked out of the LAPD for whaling on the lead suspect in a string of child murders.
When the suspect walks free on a technicality, Hunter vows revenge, but his decision to turn vigilante puts him bang in the crosshairs of a ruthless assassin.
Rebecca Finch is a hot-shot lawyer who’s dedicated her life to defending the accused. When she takes on the case of a playboy drunk driver, feelings run high, and a hate campaign leaves her under increasing pressure to betray her client.

These three lives interweave explosively, and as the body count escalates, each of them is forced to examine their own sense of justice as they try to survive.
