The Village of Eastpoint Long Island is suddenly in turmoil after John Hunter, a celebrity romance columnist resident is murdered. But murder is only the beginning of the town’s troubles. Hunter, an outsider, left dark secrets that have surfaced after the chief of police discovers paintings of Hunter and local women in compromising positions. Hank Reed, the chief of police is torn between his allegiance to protect his beloved town and the honor of his shield. As that balance bends toward justice, the townspeople rise against him, including his wife, who Reed suspects might be Hunter’s killer. As the emotional walls begin to crumble, Reed forges ahead without compromise, risking his job, his wife, and the townspeople he so desperately wants to save from the outside world.
But saving the town requires time, and Reed is quickly running out of it. Someone behind the scenes is pulling the strings for a petition to remove the police chief. If Reed doesn’t find the killers, and soon, who will?
