Recently retired assassin Michael Green is killed at his home in Chile by a team of his former comrades from the Damocles corporation, a private security firm. Damocles is deep in debt; the head of the company, Mr. Blut, has schemed to repay his creditors by killing off several of his assassins right as they reach the mandatory retirement age of fifty, allowing him to take back the millions of dollars in their pension accounts. Duncan Vizla, another Damocles assassin, is preparing to retire, which will entitle him to an $8 million pension. He is contacted by his handler, Vivian, who says Blut wants him to travel to Belarus to kill a hitman allegedly responsible for the murder of Michael Green. Duncan declines. Having left behind a false trail, he disappears to the small town of Triple Oak, Montana, where he intends to settle into a quiet retirement at a lakeside cabin. But Duncan is haunted by recurring nightmares from his time as one of the world's premier killers-for-hire - in particular, a botched hit in which he ambushed a car carrying a family. Duncan has one neighbor, a young woman named Camille, whom he notices one day struggling to chop firewood. While she is out for the day, he cuts and piles her wood. The next day, while shopping at the town's general store, he sees the woman again, and the cashier introduces them. Camille is shy and easily frightened, but Duncan takes a liking to her, and they eventually bond. She encourages him to get involved in the town, and he, having observed how jumpy she is, encourages her to learn to shoot a gun and offers a sympathetic ear when she opens up about trauma in her past.
