one night, he finds himself facing a whole new level of trouble: there has been a murder in his home, and he is the prime suspect. Unless he can figure out who's framing him, he's going to spend his life behind bars.
With the help of his loyal boss and his friend Melia, Joe embarks on a fight for his freedom as he unearths a disturbing trail of evidence. Soon, he realizes his past mistakes have placed him firmly in the center of a maze of deceit, greed, and violence, and the clues lead directly to one individual who will stop at nothing to remain in the shadows.
