When retired army colonel Tom Morgan returns to his hometown for his 45th high school class reunion, he is handed a long-misplaced letter from his former lover that intimates something bad may happen to her. She had died, in a somewhat suspicious circumstance, the same day she had written the letter. At the same time, taking place in the community was the kidnapping and ransom demand for a little girl, who later is discovered dead. Morgan embarks on his own investigation into the coincidence of the proximity of the two events and uncovers local corruption and cover-ups. The deeper involved he becomes, the more likely it is that Morgan will not be allowed to leave town alive. Harking back to his days as an Army Ranger, Morgan is forced into battle with superior numbered and heavily-armed opponents.
