Max Freeman is seeking refuge from the familiar demons of his former life as a Philadelphia police officer in his secluded shack deep in the Everglades. But his self-imposed isolation is interrupted when he receives a desperate call from his best friend, attorney Billy Manchester.

To discover an unseen killer, Max will confront not only the dangers of a forgotten Florida cityscape but the unexpected and dark corners of his own past as well.
