The story is about Senior Sergeant Gordon ‘laney’ Lane’s last day before retirement. He has had a full life of watching changes occur with not only the police department, but in life. He is walking the beat he used to walk, in the rain, thinking about his life to that point.

‘Laney’ has an appointment with death. An appointment which will right a wrong, that must be done, on this his last day.
