Simon belongs to an organization who is sick of the downfall of the hurricane devastated New Orleans and take a more direct way at punishing those who have "turned this city into hell".

There is just one catch: Though the help Simon offers is free of charge, the stranger makes it clear that he may call on Will to repay the “favor” sometime in the future. Having allowed Simon to “take care” of his wife’s rapist, Will is now beholden to carry out a series …
