After being recently cleared of murder charges, the disgraced and out-of-work police detective Steve Nastos reluctantly teams with his brash and similarly disgraced lawyer Kevin Carscadden for a paycheck. Nastos - who built his career on channeling the shadowy instincts within him to hunt dangerous predators - takes on a mission to track the whereabouts of Lindsay Bannerman, a troubled teen who is missing from her wealthy adoptive home. The trail Nastos and his lawyer pick up is one with a sadistic abuser on the other end and littered with lies, deceptions, and lifeless bodies.
Torn between spiteful former colleagues - detectives who maintain Nastos belongs in prison for homicide - a wife who wants her husband to finally liberate himself from the darkness that fuels him, and the promise he made to a stranger to find Lindsay, the search is a race against time before everything vanishes forever into the dark matter.
