When widow Honor Gillette’s daughter says there is a man lying in their yard, at first Honor doesn’t believe her. But she’s quickly proven wrong as they are suddenly held at gunpoint by Lee Coburn, the man wanted for allegedly killing his boss and co-workers. Coburn has been deep undercover for the FBI, following the trail of the ruthless and elusive “Bookkeeper.” Coburn suspects that Honor’s late husband was murdered because of what he knew.
