Truit Hickman is a small-time crook doing life in a California prison for the murder of his mother. But now Hickman is claiming that his confession was coerced. Enter Secada “Scout” Llevar, the gorgeous Internal Affairs detective who partners up with LAPD detective Shane Scully to investigate the claim.
What began as a routine review is turning into something far more complicated—and deadly. Because some things, once started, cannot be stopped… Now the Hickman case is spiraling out of control as gang violence, rivaling cops, political heavyweights, and Shane’s dangerous attraction to Scout threaten to put an abrupt end to the investigation. And their lives.
