Now, determined to leave his criminal past behind, Myles must kill Pryor to start anew. A violent clash between them leaves Myles in critical condition, prompting his girlfriend Penny to seek revenge and a chance at a normal life. Meanwhile, Pryor and his gang plan their biggest heist targeting an Ohio bank, with Penny in pursuit. As Pryor leaves chaos in his wake, this fast-paced rural noir showcases Andrew Welsh-Huggins' mastery of suspense and vivid characters, set in the heart of the Midwest.
