Tommy Spenser, a decorated combat veteran and narcotics cop born into a family of cops, is a functioning addict, hooked on daily cocktails of Oxycontin, whiskey, and self-loathing-and his cancer is back. But everything changes when Tommy is summoned to a domestic call down the street from a drug bust. Claire Samuels-Hewitt is a shell of her former self, but Tommy sees something in her-or perhaps it’s the other way around. The two lean on each other for support, and an unlikely romance blossoms.
Then a hit against the Washington family drug syndicate turns his world upside down: all clues point to somebody in Tommy’s family. As Tommy puts the pieces together and learns the truth about those closest to him, he must also come face-to-face with Claire’s past and his own demons.
At its core, Redemption is a story about survivor’s guilt, PTSD, abuse, alcoholism, and recovery-but it is also about brotherhood, the inseparable bonds between soldiers, cops, and families, and the healing power of forgiveness.
