The investigation into a series of rapes becomes a nightmare for Detective Alex Mendez when DNA from one of the victims is matched to him.
Life as detective Alex Mendez knew it came to an abrupt end two years ago with the murder of his wife. Now he is raising his teenage daughter alone. The demands of his job and the fact that his wife's case remains unsolved have been a strain on them both, but now a new case threatens not only what's left of their fragile relationship, but their very lives.
When three local women are brutally raped, the case consumes Alex. But, when DNA evidence found on the first two victims leads Alex to his suspect, it looks like an open-and-shut case, until DNA from the third victim is matched to Alex. Now, to clear his name he must face the demons from his past and reveal a long-kept secret that could disprove the evidence against him, but doing so would not only devastate his daughter, it could destroy them both.
