Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Nick Giango and his best friend, Frank Favasi, first met in 1960 when they enlisted in the Marines together as two seventeen-year-olds who wanted to make their Baltimore neighborhood proud. Four years and two honorable discharges later, they return home and spontaneously decide to join the police force. A short time later, as both men wait at City Hall to be sworn in, Nick cannot help but wonder if they have made the right decision.

Baltimore has its share of bad guys, and it is not long before Nick and Frank are thrown into the thick of a notoriously tough neighborhood. Frank, both street and book smart, is promoted to sergeant first. Driven by the all-consuming responsibility of being a homicide supervisor, Frank embarks on a mission to ensure the bad guys in Charm City are punished his way—via street justice. But after his bizarre behavior puts his career in jeopardy, things go from bad to worse for Frank—and for Nick, who just happens to get in the way.

In this action-packed, suspenseful thriller, a friendship is on the line as two police officers become embroiled in a murder investigation that could change their lives forever.
