Alexia Allen escaped a horrible childhood right after high school graduation and has thrived as a firefighter. When her equipment fails, Alexia suspects foul play, but has to wait for the conclusions of her superiors. She decides to return to her childhood home, knowing that her mother is in the hospital. Shortly after Alexia’s arrival, bad things begin to occur — murders, an attempted kidnapping, a shooting —- and she wonders who is after her and why. With the help of Hunter, a handsome police detective, she begins to tie the events to something in Alexia’s past, something that an unknown person does not want revealed.
