Christian Locke has fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a New York City Police Officer, following in his late father’s footsteps. However, not everyone shares his passion, as his loved ones fear he will meet the same fate as his father over two decades earlier.
Nick Simeone, a former narcotics detective, leaves a trail of blood wherever he goes, acting as judge, jury and executioner for victims in search of justice. Under the guidance of Michael Jorgenson, the powerful NYPD Chief of Detectives, Simeone brings comfort and retribution to those not afforded closure by a weak judicial system in exchange for a hefty payday.
Neither man knows the other, yet they are bound by a nightmare that continuously haunts each of them; a peaceful, tranquil lake, suddenly consumed by a blinding, raging fire.
When gang members tied to his father’s death are violently murdered, Christian sets out to find the truth, while trying to clear both his and his late father’s name. Meanwhile, Simeone is struggling to cope with the morality of the death and destruction he has caused, his weakening resolve placing him squarely in the crosshairs of a very dangerous man.
The lives of both men will collide and the truth will be revealed as the smoke clears off the Lake of Fire.
