In the bestselling tradition of Robert Daley and William Caunitz comes an explosive new novel about cops-so authentic it could only have been written by a cop.

The hero is upstanding Sergeant Thornton Savage of the Manhattan South homicide squad-under investigation by Internal Affairs.

The case involves the Russian mob, a triple murder, and a United States Senator-tied together in a terrifying way.

The author is a 17-year veteran of the New York City Police Department.

The novel is an inside look at what it takes-and what's at risk-for the men and women of the NYPD.
