Jake Holyfield, a young, married homicide detective, finds himself investigating a series of barbaric murders where the bodies are dissolved leaving blood, sinew and globs of fat at the scene. He is stumped not only by the lack of clues but no one can determine how the victims’ bodies were dissolved. And the murders keep coming.

Then, seemingly out of the blue, a mysterious caller provides insider clues on the killings. At first, Jake tries to refute the informant, Mikael Ruskoff’s tales as crazy but as the murders escalate, he is forced to accede that he has stepped into something that is out of his realm. The informant hits him with so many details that Jake realizes there is nothing else to do except to join forces to stop the killer. But Mikael is a man with deadly secrets that he holds close. Secrets like—he is on the run from the very same killer.

Meanwhile, Jake’s best friend, Max Wilson, gets caught up in the web of a mysterious man. Max has a sick mother who’s in danger of dying and Max is buried in medical bills. At first, his benefactor seems sent from heaven when he takes care of Max’s money woes but before long the man’s darker intentions are revealed.

As Jake’s investigation heats up, Max spirals into a dark world that he can’t escape. Then their paths crisscross in an unexpected way when a grainy video is discovered that shows Max as a witness or participant to one of the murders.

At the same time, Jake is warned to back off, to end his investigation. When he refuses, the lives of his pregnant wife and small child are threatened.

Soon, the lives of everyone Jake loves depend on what he does next.
