    Belfast 1988: Ein Mann wird mit einem Pfeil im Rücken tot aufgefunden. Es waren wohl kaum Indianer, und auch Robin Hood dürfte als Täter nicht in Frage kommen. Und da das Opfer eh nur ein Drogendealer war, könnte man sein kurioses Dahinscheiden ruhigen Gewissens zu den Akten legen. Doch Inspector Sean Duffy tut sich schwer damit, Morde zu den Akten zu legen - auch wenn seine Vorgesetzten ihn dazu drängen und der Haussegen bei der jungen Familie Duffy gerade reichlich schief hängt. Und noch jemand möchte Duffy zum Aufgeben zwingen: Eines Nachts findet er sich im Wald wieder, wo drei bewaffnete, maskierte Gestalten ihn dazu zwingen, sein eigenes Grab auszuheben.

Richard hires Killian, a formidable ex-enforcer for the IRA, to track her down before Rachel, a recovering drug addict, harms herself or the girls.
