Kat Thomas, a single mother beseiged by "Mad Dog" Lincoln, a criminal street gang leader who tries to intimidate her teenaged son to join a criminal street gang by violence, extortion, kidnapping and framing him for a murder charge. Although he doesn't know it Mad Dog killed her fiance, the boy's father fifteen years before. However, she remembers all too well.
Obsessed with building a criminal enterprise of his own, Lincoln plays a double roll as a gun runner and a federal informant. However, Lincoln's federal handlers, two ATF agents and an Assistant U.S. Attorney want Lincoln to make them rich by smuggling guns for them. Playing both ends against each other, Lincoln is double-crossing them both them and his supplier, a North Korean terrorist, Kwan Hye, who is bent on flooding America's streets with weapons promoting violence and disruption.
When Elijah Hollaway, Kat's trusted friend and pastor, assaults her forcing her to kill him in self-defense it destroys her last remaining shred of faith in men and drives her sense of guilt and anger against men to new heights.
It's up to a county sheriff's detective, Mike Eiser, who with a little help from some friends, must take Lincoln and his associates down, sort out the mess and perhaps restore a little of Kat's confidence in men.
But, is a frail single mother and a determined detective enough to take down a raging Mad Dog like Lincoln? Or a stone cold killer like Hye? And will Kat Thomas go to jail for killing Elijah Hollaway?
