Chief Jim Hopper reveals long-awaited secrets to Eleven
about his old life as a police detective in New York City,
confronting his past before the events of the hit show
Christmas, Hawkins, 1984. All Chief Jim Hopper wants
is to enjoy a quiet first Christmas with Eleven, but his
adopted daughter has other plans. Over Hopper’s protests,
she pulls a cardboard box marked “New York” out of the
basement—and the tough questions begin. Why did Hopper leave
Hawkins all those years ago? What does “Vietnam” mean? And
why has he never talked about New York?
Although he’d rather face a horde of demogorgons than talk
about his own past, Hopper knows that he can’t deny the
truth any longer. And so begins the story of the incident in
New York—the last big case before everything changed. . . .
Summer, New York City, 1977. Hopper is starting over
after returning home from Vietnam. A young daughter, a
caring wife, and a new beat as an NYPD detective make it
easy to slip back into life as a civilian. But after shadowy
federal agents suddenly show up and seize the files about a
series of brutal, unsolved murders, Hopper takes matters
into his own hands, risking everything to discover the truth.
Soon Hopper is undercover among New York’s notorious street
gangs. But just as he’s about to crack the case, a blackout
rolls across the boroughs, plunging Hopper into a darkness
deeper than any he’s faced before.
