Two Miami criminalists tackle the case of their careers as they clash over faith and fight for justice, mercy, love, and their own lives.
Ten years ago, rookie police officer Jake Casteel watched a woman die in his arms at the hand of a killer who was never caught. Hard and calloused, he spent the next ten years searching for answers in women, work, and protecting those he loves. Until she showed up.
Criminalist Avery Eller is still finding her way around Miami, getting over her former fiancee and checking one thing off her list at a time. Falling in love with Jake Casteel isn’t even on the list, especially since the only thing that seems to derail his overly protective instinct towards her is the mere mention of her faith. Her merciful approach to her cases frustrates his penchant for justice.
Now the killer has returned, and more women are turning up dead. Avery and Jake must work together to stop Miami's latest serial killer before one or both of them wind up his next victim.
