Detective Paul Rigby’s role in his girlfriend’s death has haunted him since that tragic event almost one year ago. With his dreams of marriage and a family destroyed, Rigby’s guilt now threatens to sabotage the one thing left to him: his once-promising career.
That career would already be in ruins without the intervention of Chief of Police Jim Pearson, but as the anniversary approaches Rigby finds himself increasingly at odds with his mentor.
Demoted to desk duty following a violent confrontation with a colleague, Rigby must prove he is still worthy of Pearson’s trust. A manpower crisis within the department offers him a chance of redemption but as repercussions from his punch-up spiral out of control, it seems not everyone wants him to succeed.
