Lieutenant Damien Kaine wants out. He wants out of his job and out of Chicago.
But the dead won't let him go, just yet.
He and his partner, Detective Joe Hagan, from the Vicious Crimes Unit, are sent to investigate a murder in the rural farming communities of Illinois. With few clues and forensic evidence left at the scene, Damien has little to work with.
After a second girl is found, an FBI profiler is assigned to the case.
Not only must Damien deal with the mounting pressures that a serial killer may be living in their backyard; he must also deal with the FBI looking over his shoulder, questioning his every move.
Tensions rise reaching their breaking point, as Damien and his team uncover information that will rip this tight-knit community's vision of small-town America to shreds.
And begs the question, do you really know your neighbors?
