Jo is a dedicated detective working the case of her career. While on a stake-out, she makes a valiant but fatal choice that leads to a firefight — and gets a teen hostage killed and her partner shot.
She’s thrown off the case, but continues investigating on her own and discovers a shocking piece of evidence: the drugs she’s after are not only coming from Ashland, her hometown, but are connected to Suzie. A life and love she’s tried to forget.
Meanwhile, in the scablands surrounding Ashland, a beleaguered Suzie stumbles upon Jeff — the beloved brother of Darren, the local kingpin — dying painfully after having fallen down a cliff. Next to him, a pile of cash.
Jeff begs Suzie to end his misery. She reluctantly acquiesces.
And so the fuse is lit.
Jo returns home under the guise of a leave of absence and is immediately thrown into a fire of physical and emotional turmoil.
Not only does she want to crack the case, but she wants to help Suzie. The love they shared, while unrequited for the past 16 years, is as strong as it ever was.
Darren — a one-time friend to Suzie and Jo — and his right-hand-woman, Alice, burn through the town looking for Jeff, a trail of torture in their wake as he slowly unravels with grief.
As both Darren and Jo’s investigations march forward, they circle around Suzie and her teenage daughter, Emily, and eventually collide — with disastrous results.
As lives hangs in the balance, Jo is forced to confront an evil she’s never encountered before.
ASHLAND. A new series about family, redemption, and the ambiguity of justice.
