An NYPD detective is always on duty. Erin O'Reilly is just settling down for a drink with her favorite gangster, celebrating her promotion to Detective Second Grade, when she hears the call every cop dreads: "Officer down." Soon Erin and her K-9 partner Rolf are chasing a cop-killer through—and beneath—New York City, racing to stop a lunatic's plan to tear the heart out of her city.
To make matters worse, rumor has it there's a dirty cop in Erin's precinct, and the watchdogs at Internal Affairs are sniffing around Erin. Now she'll have to prove herself like never before as terrorists, assassins, and even allies stand in her way as she fights to save Manhattan.

Keel was always a controversial figure, often doing the wrong thing for the right reason. Keel and his wife had become environmental activists. By trying to find out who killed Keel, a man of many identities emerges. He was a classic idealist, who loved his family, life, and the environment.
Amy decides to become actively involved in the investigation, a fact Jake is non too pleased with. Why cant she just stay out of his way and let him do his job? Although they are at odds at every turn, Jake develops a begrudging admiration for Amys staunch dedication to finding her husbands murderer. With a suspect list of crooked politicians, marina bums, and other unsavory characters, finding the killer isnt going to be easy.
Raymond Donne's former student Douglas Lee had everything going for him thanks to a scholarship to an exclusive private school in Manhattan, but all of that falls apart when his body is found below the Williamsburg Bridge with a dozen knife wounds in it. That kind of violence would normally get some serious attention from the police and media except when it's accompanied by signs that it could be gang related. When that's the case, the story dies and the police are happy to settle for the straightforward explanation. Dougie's mom isn't having any of that and asks Ray, who had been a cop before an accident cut his career short, to look into it, unofficially. He does what he can, asking questions, doling out information to the press, and filling in some holes in the investigation, but he doesn't get far before one of Dougie's private school friends is killed and another is put in the hospital.
What kind of trouble could a couple of sheltered kids get into that would end like that? And what does is have to do with Dougie's death? None of it adds up, but there's no way Ray can just wait around for something to happen.
