Upon being released after three years of incarceration in a psychiatric facility, former narcotics detective and unlicensed PI Trevor Galloway has no idea how to begin picking up the pieces of his shattered life. Having lost the woman he loved and exacting revenge upon those responsible, he is irreparably broken, heavily medicated, and believes himself to be unemployable.
When former Secret Service agent Nick Van Metre knocks on his door, Galloway is wary since he believes the man may be there to hold him accountable for interfering in a previous federal investigation and putting the man's partner in harm's way. However, Van Metre informs Galloway he is now working for a private security company tasked with protecting a controversial politician and wishes to hire Galloway to assist him with investigating a series of threats. Galloway is shown a series of twenty-four black and white photos taken of controversial presidential hopeful Dennis Hackney. According to Van Metre, an individual calling himself Chaerea is threatening the candidate and has managed to infiltrate several secure sites to take the photographs. Hackney has yet to fall under Secret Service protection, and Van Metre would like to wrap up the investigation before his company has to hand off protection responsibilities. While Galloway is reluctant to involve himself in the case, he is desperate for a purpose and short on cash.
In spite of his efforts to reenter his old life, Galloway has to question his own sanity after he reports an encounter with intruders who seem to have left no trace in his home. When Nick Van Metre turns up dead and an attack is carried out against Dennis Hackney, the former detective with a history of extreme violence becomes the focal point of multiple investigations.
While doing his best to keep a low profile, Galloway meets the beautiful and utterly fearless Bethany Nolan. Galloway's stoic demeanor and Nolan's fiery enthusiasm create a whirlwind dynamic as the two are pulled into a case filled with political intrigue, greed, and old-fashioned resentment. Galloway pulls clues from the photos as the unlikely lovers search for answers and dodge bullets in a journey that takes the from Pittsburgh to Savannah and back.
