Synopsis

Mercer Early, a young lawyer at one of the West Coast's most prestigious, predominantly African-American law firms, has just been assigned to a case of an L.A. cop who has shot and killed his wife. The case seems routine enough-that is, until two more previously non-violent cops kill their spouses in cold blood. The three have some strange things in common, but the LAPD vehemently denies any connection. And when the FBI issues Mercer a warning to stay off this case, he finds himself on a wild ride that takes him from the indoor corridors of law and order to the lawless streets of L.A.
