35 opens with Scott Deluca on death row for confessing to the murder of his wife. Twenty-three years earlier he was recruited and trained as a contract killer by a secret organization whose mission was to rid the world of child molesters, sex traffickers, cartel bosses, and other purveyors of human misery. Hours before his execution an old friend visits him and offers him a chance to get out of jail; earn two million dollars and take on a new identity. All he has to do is complete one last mission for his old employer.
