After eight years in prison, ex-special ops sniper, Leon Westford is released from Leavenworth with one intention in mind-to get even. Once lauded as the top sniper special forces has had in the last forty years, he feels betrayed by those who should have respected him. With his career over and his reputation destroyed he sets his plan in motion. Stealth, guile and the aid of inside help, has placed all the advantages in his favor. His mission is a 'Go' and failure is t an option. Two hundred miles away, Detective Emily L. Cooper is set to return to active duty. Overcoming the effects of PTSD from an involved shooting that resulted in the death of her partner Clinton Maddox, she's been cleared to step back onto the streets. She is welcomed back with a new partner and given an easy to solve case, the homicide of a homeless man in an unsavoury neighbourhood. A simple open and shut case, the Captain said. But the simple case becomes increasingly complicated and sets her on a collision course with one of the most cunning and deadly snipers ever seen.
