When straight-arrow detective Jason Scarsdale unwittingly befriends a woman secretly bent on murderous revenge, he's drawn into a web of malice that teaches him the value of breaking the rules. Scarsdale, a recent widower, struggles to put his life back together while raising a young daughter. Assigned to investigate the death of a man he had arrested, Scarsdale uncovers new evidence indicating the man was innocent. But his investigation is hindered by a crooked police commander who aids the real killer and by a crime analyst who witnessed the slaying, yet conceals her involvement to hide a life-threatening secret. Just when Scarsdale thought things couldn't get any worse, the killer abducts his daughter and the analyst is kidnapped by a man from her past.
