The last day of Reggie DeLillo's life starts off with a bad cup of coffee. It goes down hill from there, when Reggie decides to take revenge on the troubled teen-age neighbor who has poisoned his dog. It isn't sweet. Reggie ends up dead himself. The case seems open and shut. The boy lay on the floor with a bullet wound in his chest, and Reggie, covered in blood, was holding an automatic pistol in his hand. He'd threatened the officer on the scene; the officer had shot him in self-defense. But ex-cop Juke Miller, a broken and lonely man, isn't buying any of it. He knows his friend and neighbor Reggie better than that. Shaken and hurt by Reggie's death, Juke takes matters into his own hands and re-enters the violent, heartbreaking world he had abandoned when he left the force seven long years before, after the murder of his ex-wife. His investigation provokes the wrath of a vengeful police chief, the admiration of his ex-partner, and the desires of Greta Zaretsky, the beautiful detective on the case.
