Massachusetts State Trooper Bobby Dodge watches a tense hostage standoff unfold through the scope of his sniper rifle. Just across the street, an armed man has barricaded himself in with his wife and child. The man's finger tightens on the trigger and Dodge has only a split second to react... and forever suffer the consequences. Twenty-five years ago, Catherine Gagnon was buried underground during a month-long nightmare of abduction and abuse. Now, her husband has just been killed. Her father-in-law, the powerful Judge Gagnon, blames Catherine for his son's death. What brings Bobby and Catherine together is a moment of violence - but what connects them is a passion far deeper and much more dangerous.
