Twelve years ago, Alex Mendez was a fresh-faced uniformed police officer, unsure of himself or the profession he had chosen. When a drunk driver kills a family on its way home from vacation, Alex was forced to grow up quickly, witnessing unrepentant evil the likes of which he’d never seen.
Derrick Calloway was a shiftless drunk. No job, no ambition. Only a devoted wife and loving child to inspire him to get clean. Covered in the stench of alcohol, blood and saliva, Derrick Calloway is cuffed and forced into the back of a police car.
Meanwhile, across town, fate deals Calloway a gut-wrenching blow. One that causes him to swear revenge on everyone responsible for his incarceration. Having served his time, Calloway is now out. And, as the saying goes, revenge is a dish best served cold.
