It is the most scandalous era in the history of the Boston Archdiocese, and the church is embroiled in a battle to survive public outrage and scorn based on countless allegations of pedophilia committed by its priests and the associated hypocrisy of the church hierarchy. A TV news anchorman for a local cable news outlet, Jack Ralston, exploits the societal climate to achieve his richly deserved status. Ralston breaks a story of an apparent murder victim found in the fashionable Back Bay section of Boston, a story that could attract national attention. Frank Willis, a thirty-four-year veteran of the Boston Police and a former homicide detective with a tarnished reputation, responds to the call. With the city in turmoil and demanding answers, Willis unknowingly finds his road to redemption. Ralston achieves his coveted celebrity, but not through proving his theory that the murder is an act of retribution by a one-time victim of sexual abuse from a member of the clergy.
