Mullins's life has been one of quiet devastation since his wife and one of his twin daughters were killed in an accident involving a drunk driver. Mullins attempts to balance his life between his reporting and his duties of fatherhood toward his surviving daughter, but it is a losing battle with his paternal duties coming out on the short end. Mullins is further distracted, mightily, when he discovers that the man who killed his wife and daughter has been freed from prison.

Things begin to slowly converge for Mullins, however, when a convicted murderer, attempting to overturn the verdict against him on appeal, is gunned down with brutal and precise efficiency outside a corrections facility. Mullins is familiar with the victim, and even more familiar with his crime: the man was the subject of a series feature that Mullins wrote during the man's trial and conviction. While researching his past stories, Mullins discovers to his shock that another criminal he had previously written about had been killed in a similar fashion. And when a third criminal Mullins had written about is executed in the same way, Mullins cannot escape the conclusion that someone is using his crime story articles as a means to obtain a rough and righteous justice against those who have escaped the law.
