When two suburban high-school students are found murdered in Chicago - one in a particularly brutal fashion - Detective Paul Turner and his partner, Buck Fenwick, are assigned to the case. Over the years the duo has developed a reputation for being able to handle politically sensitive cases, and since both boys came from prominent families in the area, cases don't get much more sensitive than this one. When the dead teenagers turn out to have been well respected and liked, with a solid family life and no enemies anyone knows about, Turner and Fenwick find themselves grappling with a seemingly motiveless killing. To make matters worse, as a gay father with two teenage sons and a new lover in his life, Turner has difficulty in bringing his full attention to bear on the case. Yet, as details slowly emerge, he begins to suspect that he is investigating something more deadly and more horrifying than a pair of senseless killings, something that could threaten the lives of the people he holds most dear.
