The last day of Reggie DeLillo's life started off with a bad cup of coffee. It went downhill from there. His dog was poisoned by a troubled teenage neighbor, and Reggie vowed revenge. He found out it isn't always sweet.

The case seems open and shut. Reggie was caught during an attempted murder and threatened the officer on the scene, who shot him in self-defense. But ex-cop Juke Miller doesn't believe his friend and neighbor Reggie was capable of either. The broken and lonely Juke has been off the force and out of touch for seven long years since the murder of his ex-wife, his only refuge the bar he runs.

Shaken and hurt by Reggie's death, Juke takes matters into his own hands, reentering the violent, heartbreaking world he left behind when he left the force. His investigation provokes the wrath of a vengeful police chief, the admiration of his ex-partner, and the desires of Greta Zaretsky, the beautiful detective on the case.

The truths Juke turns up rock his peaceful town, forever shattering the lives of his good neighbors.
