With Jesus Vargas out on bail and on the run, BCI Agent Eugene Booker calls in a favor from an old acquaintance, ex-DEA Agent Nick Lafferty. Just need some light intel-gathering about a street gang called the Fleetwood Syndicate. Easy-pease. So why can’t Nick let go of the old adage: no good deed goes unpunished.
Still, Lafferty tries to do his old friend a solid, but when his inquiries result in an attempt on his life, and that of ADA Caitlin McKenna, as well, Lafferty must ramp up his game. With his ex-partner Delmar Harley by his side, Lafferty inserts himself into a task force investigation into the Syndicate, where lies and deceptions get bigger and go deeper than a simple case of a wayward bail jumper.
Determined to get answers, Lafferty and Harley push back against the criminals and law enforcement alike, but will they find what they’re looking for, and if so, before or after more people die?
