Ray Weiss is a third generation cop. All he’s ever wanted is to follow in his father and grandfather’s footsteps. But when he finds out what the senior officers in Chicago’s District 20 have planned for his “initiation” into the brotherhood, he faces a difficult choice.|
Ray’s senior partner, Jack Fiore, asks him to rob a jewelry store. It’s just a little fun—especially because they’re set up to “discover” the crime. Besides, Fiore gets the jewelry, Ray gets to be one of the boys, and the storeowner collects insurance. Ray doesn’t want to do it, but Fiore leaves him no alternative. . . .
When Ray breaks into the store, he finds a corpse instead of his promised reward. Is it coincidence, or payback for being a reluctant rookie? Detective Sloane Pearson is on the case, and if Ray doesn’t help her find the killer, she might discover something even more dangerous: the truth.
