Talion warrior Sandor Kearn is the Enforcer for the Kyth, dedicated to hunting down and destroying rogue Kyth who attack their own people or humans. He recently killed the renegade Talion who had set fire to a local dance club and then killed the arson investigator, Maynard Cooper. Since the cops have had no luck in solving the murder, Coop's protege, Lena Nelson, is trying to do so herself. Lena - who doesn't know she is part Kyth - has the ability to see fragmented flashbacks of the crimes she's investigating though her sense of touch, and when she meets Sandor, she realizes that he's somehow connected to Coop's death. Aware of her suspicions, Sandor must convince Lena of his innocence, yet keep her from digging further, which would risk exposing the existence of the Kyth. And when they fall in love, that makes things even more complicated.
