Carolyn Krupp already has her hands full as a single mother raising a special needs child. When her brother Mark is assaulted and left for dead at the edge of a park she asks her neighbor, ex cop turned PI Tom Donovan, to look into the matter as the police seem to already have made up their minds that Mark was in the wrong place at the wrong time and Karma caught up with him. After looking into it informally, Donovan and ex partner Sherry Palkowski stumble onto a possible connection to other assaults. Is someone going around Western New York meeting out punishment to a group of men accused of domestic violence?
Meanwhile in South Buffalo, Donovan’s grandfather Hugh has passed away. The ‘retired’ bookmaker and union fixer has left his business to his long time Lieutenant Whitey Brennan. No sooner has Brennan taken over that as person from his past comes forward with a story that he doesn’t want to get out. He enlists Donovan’s aid in a game of cat and mouse that reminds him that not everything in the past can stay buried.
