After an unforgivable mistake almost costs his partner his life, Officer AJ Bugbee limps back home, looking for the quiet of a sleepy, small-town police force. The quiet doesn't last. As he digs into an increasingly weird tangle of deaths and disappearances, AJ realizes that protecting the people he loves will take everything he's got. Even, maybe especially, the thing he's been running away from.
