Overview

Cops were dying. A killer was going free. A woman with a broken heart was out to make a difference.

A mother, a widow, a black woman cop, Marti MacAlister lives and works in a quiet suburb. Part of her died in Chicago when her husband, an undercover cop, was killed by a bullet from his own gun. Now Marti is headed back to the city to find the truth about Johnny MacAlister's death.

Another Chicago undercover cop has died in a drug buy gone wrong, and Johnny's name keeps coming up. Guided by informants, scattered clues, and the hard wisdom of the streets, Marti scours the city's underbelly for the truth she must have: the kind of truth that can give a grieving woman back her life, or take it away all over again.

Marti MacAlister shared more than just a good marriage and two kids with her husband, Johnny. Like her, he was a cop--until he was found shot through the head. Although Marti has learned to accept Johnny's death, she has never accepted Internal Affairs' ruling of suicide. When a narc squad cop Johnny worked with jumps--or is pushed?--to his death from the roof of a parking garage, Marti begins to suspect a connection to Johnny's death. She's determined to find that connection--and maybe to clear Johnny's name in the process. Bland's novel, the fourth in a fine series, boasts a tightly woven plot, fine writing, and plenty of action, but what really distinguishes it is the depiction of Marti MacAlister--a tough, smart cop and a loving woman who successfully juggles kids, career, community, family, and friends.
