It was a crime so brutal, it changed the lives of even the most hardened homicide cops. Only Judge Carey Moore seems to be standing in the way of a conviction.

Detective Sam Kovac is as hard-boiled as they come, and his wisecracking partner, Nikki Liska, isn't far behind. Neither one wants to be on this case, but when Karl Dahl escapes from custody, everything changes, and a seemingly straightforward case cartwheels out of control.
