Police Detective John Bekker had it all: a beautiful wife, a five-year old daughter and a job he loved...but all of that changed in the blink of an eye. Assigned to a special task force investigating organized crime, Bekker got a little too close to mob boss Eddie Crist. As a message to back off, Bekker's home is invaded, his wife murdered and all this witnessed by his five-year-old daughter.A decade later Bekker, a drunk with an institutionalized daughter, comes face to face with Eddie Crist, now near death from cancer with a final wish -- to go to his grave with a clear conscience. In an ironic twist of fate, the man Bekker believed responsible for his wife's death hires him to solve the decade-old murder. The outcome leaves everyone breathless.
