When several shots are fired into the bistro where husband and wife crime-fighting duo Patrick Gillard and Ingrid Langley are meeting their boss, they discuss the shooting with their friend, Detective Chief Inspector James Carrick. Several years previously Carrick was also targeted by a criminal, Benny Cooper, who was eventually convicted of involvement in child pornography. Benny and his accomplice are now out of prison, and soon the intimidation of Carrick and his family returns.
When Cooper is murdered, Carrick is found unconscious at the murder scene, and his blood-stained clothing makes him the prime suspect. Ingrid and Patrick take up the case, plunging themselves and their careers into grave danger.
