An idyllic wilderness hike turns deadly when detective Ray Johnson tumbles into a ravine and lands on the corpse of the son of a prominent citizen. Ray teams up with his troubled partner and their boss to solve the murder before city leaders bump them from the political hot potato case. And before the twin temptations of alcohol and lust can derail his colleagues. Their determination to find a killer leads them into San Antonio's dark underbelly inhabited by drug dealers and paid assassins. As the pressure builds to solve the case, Ray finds himself with multiple missions: solve a murder...save one partner from career suicide and another from matrimonial destruction...and win a woman's heart.
