Sinopse

A number of bodies are discovered at a road construction site. Most of the cadavers date to a church graveyard that had occupied the site in the 1800s, but the Medical Examiner finds three young, female victims that have only been buried for six months. All indications are that they had been shot. The city declares the site to be Hallowed Ground and the intersection-widening project is suspended.The Tampa Police Department begins an investigation into the three murders, several of the homicide detectives struggling with their own demons, as they realize that the killings are merely the tip of a large iceberg. At the core of these crimes lies the ugly world of human trafficking.A young woman appears at TPD headquarters and tells homicide detectives that her sister may be one of the victims. She explains that she and her sibling were citizens of Ecuador. When were in their early teens, two men had approached their parents with an offer to bring the girls to the U.S. where they would learn a career and eventually earn enough money to bring the parents to the States. The parents agreed and took the men’s money, but the girls were thrown into forced drug addiction and prostitution. One was sent to Maryland, while the other went to Tampa, Florida.The head of this criminal empire and his underboss have been drifting toward a confrontation to determine its leadership and future. The second-in-command is determined to topple the leader; the boss being equally resolved to maintain his position. Both are like-minded—win or die trying.Information from several sources indicates that the two warring factions will have their showdown in an area known as Fort Lonesome, a ghost town thirty miles southeast of Tampa. Scores of law enforcement officers from the Hillsborough County Sherriff’s Department and the TPD descend on the area hoping to prevent Armageddon.This is a story of struggle between strong, determined personalities: the boss, who refuses to relinquish his power; the lieutenant, who feels that he is almost indestructible after two failed attempts on his life, giving him greater encouragement to overthrow the ruler; the detectives, who must confront and defeat their inner demons of self-doubt; the young woman who must find her sister and punish the men responsible for the life that they had been forced into.
