Even the Chief of Police, Ben Truman, is thinking about leaving.
That is, until he discovers a body in a cabin up by the lake.
The dead man turns out to be a Boston prosecutor who had been investigating a series of gang-related murders.
When Truman heads to the city to follow the few leads he has on the case, he is not welcomed by the local police - after all, big city crime is not something he has had any experience with.
But Truman refuses to let go of the case. With the help of a retired cop, he becomes embroiled in an investigation which reaches back to a killing 20 years ago...
