Salem Matthews IV has come home to Shenandoah County, Virginia because he has nowhere else to go. A twenty year career in the U.S. Army Special Forces has provided him with a pension, healthcare benefits, and a severe case of post-traumatic stress disorder. Salem has lost the ability and inclination to interact with people and is only interested in locking himself away from the world.
The peace and seclusion that Salem seeks is quickly shattered by converging forces that demand his attention. Travis Watson, a local realtor, has his eye on the magnificent lakefront home that Salem has inherited and is prepared to do whatever it takes to gain possession of it. Meanwhile, William Toms is trying to convince Salem to donate his property to the environmental group he represents.
When Salem makes it clear he has no intention of giving up his land he becomes the target of open hostility. As he begins to realize his life is in danger Salem sends out a call for reinforcements.
While he waits for help to arrive Salem draws on his military background to protect himself and the ones he loves. Time is running out and the person who wants to kill him remains a mystery. One man is already dead and Salem knows that he is next on the killer's list.
