After serving a fifteen year prison sentence, an unnamed criminal flees New York City when he is attacked by a group of gangsters. He heads to the small town of Banshee, Pennsylvania in search of his ex-lover and former accomplice Anastasia, who is living under the name Carrie Hopewell with her new husband Gordon and their two children Deva and Max. When the town's newly-appointed sheriff Lucas Hood is killed in a bar robbery, the criminal assumes his identity and takes up the mantle of sheriff of Banshee, with only the bar owner Sugar Bates knowing the truth. Lucas learns from Banshee's young mayor Dan Kendall that the town is under the stranglehold of business owner and criminal entrepreneur Kai Proctor, a former Amish who abandoned his faith in favor of illegal enterprises. Back in New York, mysterious crime boss Mr. Rabbit sends the gangsters after a former contact of Lucas's, Job, who helped Lucas forge paperwork to become sheriff. Job manages to escape, displeasing Mr. Rabbit, who instructs his employee to "find them both quickly."
