It is 1910 along the rain
drenched coast of Washington state. Felton Connelly
is trying to run from a past that haunts him. A past that
took the lives of his wife and two children. His dedication to being a
police officer kept him from being there that night to save his family. He
vowed to never do police work again.
Until his friend Nolan Delford,
an Aberdeen, Washington
detective talks him into working undercover. A reluctant but capable Connelly
agrees to aid Delford in his quest to bring one Billy Gohl, an Aberdeen
thug, to justice. Gohl is suspected of murder and dumping the bodies into Grays
Harbor. Many of the corpses have surfaced in the harbor with empty
pockets, heads bashed in, and a bullet hole between the eyes.
Two women vie for Connelly’s attention.
One of great beauty, the other a plain but strong young widow
with two sons whose husband was done away with by Billy Gohl.
Not only must Connelly bring Gohl
to justice, but he also must choose which woman he wants. If his haunted past
doesn’t get in the way.
