Recently, new DNA evidence cleared Greerdon's name and he was released. Then two officers are murdered, and Greerdon is found at the scene of the crime with no alibi, Chris once again becomes suspicious, despite Greerdon's claims a police conspiracy wants to send him back to jail.Either crooked cops are trying to cover up a years-old crime - or Chris was a fool for helping secure Greerdon's release. Suddenly wary of the system and those who serve it, Chris can't trust anyone, especially not the policemen supposed to be fellow officers of the court.Chris's girlfriend, child psychiatrist Anne Greenwald, is drawn into the deepening mystery when one of her patients confides facts to her that could give Chris the evidence he needs to break the conspiracy. But she can't violate doctor-patient confidentiality. Complicating thing further, Chris's teenage daughter becomes involved with Greerdon's son.Time is running out, and murders are piling up. If the killer can't be stopped, Chris or his daughter could be the next victim.
