Half-blinded and half-deafened in an on-the-job injury almost exactly one year ago, Detective Sergeant Noah Harkham was forced to retire early. However, he has found a new calling: teaching crime scene preservation techniques to uniform officers of his old precinct. 
   
     One case has haunted him, however. Seven years ago, Noah was a rookie detective working a gruesome case with his mentor and first partner, Rob Meares. Soon after Rob's unexpected death, the leads dried up and Noah was left with his first cold case. Now, after all these years, the killer has struck again, and Noah is asked to consult on the case.
   
     But when the evidence begins to point to Noah himself, he'll have to fight to clear his name and help his former partner and best friend, Detective Allan Franks, catch the real killer. Plagued with insomnia and bouts of uncharacteristic anger and erratic behavior, the cause of which even Noah doesn't understand, proving his innocence may end up being an insurmountable task.
   
     And his connection to the case may prove to be much more real than anyone could have imagined.
