Story intro

Former Marine and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) operative Robert McCall now lives in a diverse apartment complex in Roxbury, Boston. He is working as a Lyft driver and assists the less fortunate with the help of his close friend and former CIA colleague, Susan Plummer. McCall travels to Istanbul to retrieve a Boston bookstore owner's daughter, kidnapped by her father. He also helps Sam Rubinstein, an elderly Holocaust survivor who is looking for a painting of his sister; the siblings were separated in the Nazi death camps and the painting had been auctioned off. After discovering the apartment's courtyard has been vandalised, McCall accepts an offer from Miles Whittaker, a young resident with an artistic but troubled background, to repaint the walls. McCall later rescues Miles, who had been lured away by a local gang. Susan and DIA operative Dave York, McCall's former partner, are called to investigate the murder-suicide of an agency affiliate and his wife in Brussels. At their hotel, Susan is accosted in her room and killed in a robbery by two men who got off the elevator on her floor. When he receives the news, McCall begins to investigate both her death and the case she was working on. McCall determines that the suspects' foreknowledge of her floor and the expertly-delivered fatal stab suggest that she was targeted. He also confirms that the incident Susan was looking into was staged to look like a murder-suicide, and that Susan's death is probably connected to it. McCall makes contact with York, who had thought him dead for years, and informs him of his findings.
