A second boy is found two days later in the same condition. Samson, Vota and Murphy, the Homicide Detectives assigned to the crimes, quickly come to the conclusion that the two boys were victims of the same killer. Vota searches for a homeless man who may be witness to a fatal street shooting while Murphy is trying to locate his brother, a suspect in a robbery homicide, before the situation turns much worse. A killer who believes he is following a mandate from God is handing out Old Testament retribution to those he identifies as responsible for his torment. Slowly, the insanity and tragedy behind the killer's motives are revealed through cryptic messages left at the scenes of the crimes and delivered in anonymous notes. All of these lives collide leading to a dramatic conclusion on the turbulent streets of Gravesend.
