Irish-American detective Kevin Corcoran’s life is in shambles. Obsessed with the job, and disgusted by his wife’s betrayal, life on the beat is the only place he finds solace. With his best-friend Francis Maguire locked up in the tombs for murdering people in an effort to keep the truth from him, Corcoran believes Maguire’s death is the only way he can move forward. Though navigating the gritty, mean streets of New York City’s notoriously crooked neighborhood gives him a sense of purpose, changes are coming that will alter his way of policing. And as political shifts allow room for new leaders, Corcoran must decide where he fits in the new landscape.
