Thomas Benning is not a drug dealer, and yet, due to a police mistake, he ends up having to bury his wife and baby. Thomas sustains a gunshot in the raid, but his physical injuries don’t hurt as much as his grief. To escape the pain, he travels and eventually moves to Mobile, Alabama. It feels like a fresh start.
Unfortunately, Thomas gets involved in some dangerous political activities and flees back to Canada, where he meets lawyer Stacey Bogs while he seeks to buy land. Their first meeting is contentious at best, but they eventually form a connection.
Following the death of his family, Thomas had envisioned a simple life, but he isn’t going to get it as he is suddenly drawn into a web of international intrigue and murder. Thomas battles the bad guys as his relationship with Stacy turns romantic, but he still struggles with grief, anger, and now, a need for violence.
