In the heat of a Phoenix summer, free-lance journalist Travis Jefferson is recruited to find a missing environmentalist. Travis is a veteran haunted by ghosts--some from the war, others more recent. His search takes him into an incestuous world of sex, politics, money and murder. The police aren't sure whose side he's on. When he gets too close to the truth, the game gets rough.
