Revenge

John Corey is a violent man who views the world with a jaded eye. He is accustomed to observing scenes of violent death, but when the victims are people he has recently met, he feels a special obligation to seek out their killer. When his newfound girlfriend, Emma, is raped and murdered by the same person who killed the Gordons, John is driven to a white hot hatred and drive to not only find the killer, but to exact a lasting revenge upon him.

Revenge is also a motive for Tobin, against the Gordons. After years of concocting a scheme to deprive the government of the Captain Kidd treasure, his plans are ruined by the Gordons' change of heart. When Tobin discovers that John is sleeping with Emma, Tobin's ex-girlfriend, Tobin adds rape to the crime of murder to deliver some revenge to John as well.
