When moody cop Adam Beaudreaux isn't serving the good citizens of his Pacific Northwest community, he relaxes at Malloy's, a bar he owns jointly with the daughter of his former partner. Also working at Malloy's is Grady Jameson, who had saved Adam's life many years ago in Vietnam after his Canadian missionary parents were killed when he was 8. Grady also is skilled in martial arts, a talent he puts to good use helping Adam fight bad guys. Miguel, a former gang member whom Adam and Grady befriended, also lends a hand from time to time. At the office, Adam's boss is Lt. Charles Pine.
