Eve Dallas finds herself off her home territory and involved with the Feds as she tries to recapture a convicted felon that she put away as a rookie officer. As she juggles not working with her own team, the only person that she has to help her and keep her on the straight and narrow is her enigmatic husband Roarke. But this is not an easy case. Eve finds herself back in Dallas a city that she escaped from and one that brings back a lot of bad memories. As Eve works frantically alongside the Feds and the Dallas PD to apprehend the escaped criminal McQueen, she also has to deal with the flashbacks to her childhood which keep on occurring. What is it about his current accomplice that keeps on rubbing Eve up the wrong way and triggering her flashbacks? Is it someone that she knows and if so who could it be? With lives along the line it looks as if only Eve’s own death or her determination that will resolve matters.
