As an experienced law enforcement agent, Bryce Kelley knows a setup when he sees one. But this time, he’s the one being set up. Waking up after a night of partying, he finds himself on the floor of a friend’s apartment covered in blood, a knife by his side, his friend lying dead across the room. Counter to his police training, he steals the only clue – an ugly ring covered in blood. He’s determined to find the killer, but complications arise as he becomes the sole suspect and the target of a town-wide manhunt. He seeks refuge with and help from his former colleague, Chelsey Alton – and a whole new set of complications arise.
