Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks is well aware that he must handle the highly sensitive'and dangerously explosive'investigation with the utmost discretion.</ Because the case may involve police corruption, an officer from Professional Standards, Inspector Joanna Passero, has arrived to work with Banks and his team. Though he tries to keep an open mind and offer his full cooperation, the dedicated Banks and his practical investigative style clash with Passero's cool demeanor and by-the- book professionalism.
