(From the publisher):
Ben Sawyer was a big city cop until the day he nearly killed a suspect in full view of dozens of cell-phone cameras. Disgraced, the Sawyers relocated to Newberg, the tiny Wisconsin town where Ben and his wife, Alex, grew up. Now a police detective, Ben knows most of his fellow cops don't trust him.
Drug-running, prostitution and other big city ills have made their way into the American heartland. Ben suspects that someone high up in Newberg PD is taking payoffs from local drug lords, but he has no idea how far the corruptions has spread or what the dirty copy are willing to do to protect their lucrative "side business."
Alex Sawyer is accused of adultery and murder. Ben's tossed off the force. His only ally is a Latina rookie officer who is as much an outcast in Wisconsin as Ben himself. And there's worse to come. A convicted killer has vengeance on his mind and Ben Sawyer in his sights.
