Once the greatest manufacturing center in the world, the city of Detroit is now literally burning itself to the ground. And even though Alex McKnight was sworn to serve and protect the city as a police officer, a trip to Motown these days is a trip to a past he'd just as soon forget. So he's more than happy to stay in the little town of Paradise, three hundred miles and half a lifetime away.

But then he gets a call from his old sergeant. It turns out that Darryl King, a young man he helped put away in his last month on the job, will be getting out of prison. The same man who brutally murdered a woman at the train station, about to walk free. When the sergeant invites him downstate to have a drink for old times' sake, it's an offer that Alex would normally refuse. But there's a certain female FBI agent Alex can't stop thinking about. So he gets in his truck and he goes back to Detroit.
