Ever since he and his wife walked into the middle of an armed robbery, Washington D.C. Homicide Detective Sam Hardin has lived at the bottom of a bottle. When the smoke cleared his pregnant wife lay dying on the cold tile floor. At the hospital the doctors had only one option, save the child.
It's been five years since that dreadful night, and if Sam were to be honest with himself he would admit that he was jealous of his son Frankie's survival. But honest self discovery is the furthest thing from Sam's mind as he muddles through his daily routine.
Frankie was a special little boy for when the bullet that killed his mother wounded him in the womb, his brain was rewired in a way that allowed him to see things not visible to the average mortal. It is this special talent that will draw the attention of an otherworldly being bent on the annihilation of mankind.
A routine murder investigation snowballs into a fight to the death when Sam is drawn into the ages old battle between good and evil. He must come to terms with his own feelings of guilt in time to save his son from the shadows of the past.
Will mankind awaken one morning to new masters?
Or will good prevail?
