Ray Stryker is a Gulf War veteran, ex-cop turned private investigator, and a recovering alcoholic with a volatile temper and a short fuse.
Jayne Morris is a painter and aspiring writer, ritually abused as a child, who harbors some inner demons of her own. Her life is also empty until she meets Ray, and for now, these two damaged people seem to complete each other.
Apart, they are just two more damaged people on the long hard road to oblivion. Together, they are so much more. The feelings they had to endure - anger, abandonment, denial, disbelief, social withdrawal, and guilt - no longer made them feel powerless over their own destiny.
Enter Romeo; a suave, charming serial killer - who has his eyes set on Jayne. Can Ray stop him in time from claiming Jayne as his next victim?
