It’s a high-risk, high-reward assignment that becomes hotter when Bode is given the job in his small-town hometown, where he was once a shining example of an all-American kid before his problems started. Bode left town with a terrible secret five years ago after burning down everything in his life. He has returned with a criminal record and the hubris to think that working for Cal Fire will give him a second shot.
