In the rain-drenched streets of 1937 Louisville, Kentucky, a city drowning in the Great Flood, private investigator Charlie Parker is a man with debts to repay and secrets to bury. Haunted by his past and pursued by a relentless storm, Charlie’s world collides with corruption, crime, and the shadowy underbelly of the city he calls home.

When the desperate wife of Franklin Browning, a man Charlie owes a life-altering favor, appears on his doorstep, he has no choice but to accept the case. Her husband’s sudden disappearance unravels a web of police corruption that runs deeper than the floodwaters, implicating those sworn to protect and serve. As Charlie delves deeper into the murky waters of this case, he discovers that a local mob boss, a man feared by all, holds the key to the truth.

With time running out and the relentless rain serving as a constant reminder of his past sins, Charlie Parker must navigate the treacherous terrain of deceit, betrayal, and a city on the brink of collapse. The lines between right and wrong blur as Charlie races against the clock to find Franklin Browning and uncover the dark secrets that threaten to drown them all. Will he emerge from the floodwaters with his soul intact, or will he be swept away by the tide of corruption that threatens to consume everything in its path?
