Late at night and seemingly alone, Chicago prosecutor Kristen Mayhew waits for the elevator when a stranger arrives and inadvertently frightens her. The newcomer introduces himself as Detective Abe Reagan recently transferred from five years undercover on drugs to homicide. They ride down together and he escorts her to her car only to see she has a flat. Abe goes to change the tire, but the opened trunk reveals a corpse and several boxes.

The police arrive including Abe's new partner Mia Mitchell, who just lost her partner. As the boxes are methodically opened, letters with articles of clothing are in each. The letters are addressed to Kristen informing her that a degenerate has been killed, where the body is buried, and personal information on her home improvement efforts. As Abe and Mia accompanied by Kristen track the evidence, each wonders if one of their kind has gone rogue and become an avenging serial killer. While the inquiries lead from one grave to another, Abe and Kristen begin to fall in love, but he fears commitment having failed to be there even when a loved one died.
