Lightning never strikes the same spot twice. Or so the saying goes. But Detective Martin Emmett has stumbled upon an exception to the rule. The year is 1967 and the city of Newark, New Jersey is in the grip of a heat wave, bringing the racial tension that has been simmering for months to a boil. When the body of a black teenage boy is discovered in a subway tunnel, one finger cut from his hand, Emmett gets the case. The severed finger sounds similar to another report the reluctant, young Homicide detective read while banished to desk duty by his spiteful Lieutenant, who offers him a deal: solve the potentially incendiary murder quickly and quietly, then Emmett can return to regular duty. With his career on the line, Emmett sets out to do just that and discovers that somebody has been abducting young boys, using the sewers under the city as a maze in which to hunt and kill them in a twisted game of predator and prey. Set against the background of the infamous, real life race riot that tore through Newark in 1967, bringing the police force to its knees, Emmett must track the killer before the next hunt begins.
