Former Homicide Detective Ben Decovic is still trying to understand the death of his wife at the hands of a gunman. As a police officer, he understands that not every event has a reason. But he keeps thinking that if his wife was only five minutes late for her appoinment she would still be alive. Not able to continue working at the unit that could not solve his wife's murder, he has taken the role of beat officer in a community near Myrtle Beach. Decovic hopes that by returning to the lesser role of patrol, it will help him get away from his memories of her horrible death.
While investigating a break-in at a local strip joint, he is beaten and his gun stolen. The gun is later used to kill two people. While patroling his area he happens upon an investigation into the death of a beverage magnate who was well-liked in the community. The only witness is a man struggling with Alzheimers.
Ben's homicide instincts kick in and he begins to work behind the scenes when he finds the Homicide Detectives unwilling to listen to his ideas. The bodies start to pile up in this mystery and all the mayor cares about is that it doesn't affect the tourists. Is everyone on the take?
The action moves pretty fast in this dark mystery of secrets and lies. Hopefully we will get to see more of Officer Ben Decovic.
