A DEAD, UNARMED BLACK KID. A COP ON THE HOOK. AND TWO DETECTIVES MUST SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH WHILE THE CITY BURNS
A storm-drenched night in the lower East Side of Manhattan. Amid pouring rain, breaking glass and barking dogs, a harrowing chase through a densely populated housing project leaves a young, unarmed black kid dead at the hands of the police.
Tasked with leading the Force Investigation Team, NYPD detective Frank Flynn must once again team up with IA investigator Christine Levy to look into the deadly shooting.
Yet before the investigation can get off the ground, community unrest boils over, sparked to violence by a flamboyant civil rights leader determined to get justice for the young man, regardless of the collateral damage.
The investigation spirals out of control as cops are targeted, an overzealous prosecutor forces an indictment, and Flynn and Levy tug at the threads of a conspiracy that reaches the pinnacle of the city’s political leadership, threatens very powerful people, and leaves Flynn and Levy scrambling to put all the moving pieces together while the city burns.
