      The Chicago Police Department says Samantha Mack shot her partner, Fred, during the confusion of a bungled pursuit. Mack says it was their quarry, a violent pedophile named Marco Trovic, who fired the deadly round in that darkened room. But Mack was knocked out and canít really say what happened.

    When no evidence of Trovic is found on the scene and the bullet is shown to have come from Mackís own gun, the Department labels Fredís death as a case of friendly fire.Back at the station, it seems no one believes Mackís account. Not Internal Affairs investigator Alex OíConner, and not even Mackís lover, whose best attempts at support leave her as cold as the wind whipping across Lake Michigan.

    With the Department looking to quiet the bad press, Mack canít count on anyone to help her track down Trovic. Even if she can somehow find him in the dark recesses of Chicagoís underworld, can she prove that Trovic was the shooter? With her back to the wall and her career at stake, now itís time for Mack to take matters into her own hands to clear her nameóand avenge her partnerís death.
