Frank Chase wanted to get away from it all--away from the killing, the dirt, and the danger that was the daily life of boston detective.
So an honest cop pulled the one illegal deal of his career, and escaped with his beautiful new wife to the nice neat suburbs with a lot of sombody else's money.
All Frank wanted was to retire safe and still young enough to enjoy life. But he found he still had to deal with some people back in Boston--people who wanted a couple of things from him.
First they wanted tehir money back
Then they wanted him dead.
