Full Plot

In the aftermath of a violent robbery, a New Orleans doctor, Eugene Grimes, wakes to find a wounded woman and $2 million in cash on his doorstep. In pursuit of the thieves, police captain Clarence Jefferson discovers that Grimes is the key not only to the money but to a dark web of intrigue and vengeance stretching back to a bloody civil war in El Salvador a decade before. Anonymous Eugene Grimes, a doctor living and working in the underbelly of New Orleans, wakes in the night to find a woman with a bullet wound - Callie Carter - and a case containing $2 million abandoned on his doorstep. Drawn into a labyrinth of betrayal, killing and revenge by Callie and Luther Logan, her partner in crime, Grimes finds himself forced to confront the nightmare of his own dark past in a psychological death-match with Bad City's cruellest law enforcer: the unstoppable Captain Clarence Seymour Jefferson.
