Ex-Homicide Detective Frank Langer is a broken man - but he's the only one standing in the way of a deadly conspiracy.

A year ago, after a mental breakdown, Langer was placed on medical leave from the squad he was once hand-picked to lead. Now he spends his days drinking and chain-smoking, and his nights waking up screaming from a horrific recurring nightmare.

Until one day, by chance, he stumbles on a plot to kidnap children.

When he shows up at the squad with his story, his former colleagues pat him on the back and tell him to go home. Undaunted, he's consumed by a single vow - to expose the perpetrators and prove he's not crazy.

One step ahead of the conspirators, he races to fit together the pieces of an intricate puzzle. When those pieces finally connect, the answer is more deadly than he ever imagined.

But can he find someone to buy his story? And can he stay alive long enough to prove his sanity?
