Retired police chief Don Monroe waits on an island in the path of a hurricane.
Dressed in his old uniform, he drinks to forget the past. A killer took a half dozen lives here, the last his own wife. He had failed her, now he will join her and be buried in the waves. A young woman comes out of the storm to his house seeking help. The old killer has returned for one last crime wave. Fate has given him another chance to solve the case and a reason to live.
