For Butch Karp, chief assistant district attorney for New York City, the police shooting of a black man raises a host of disquieting issues, chief among them the question of whether the NYPD cop's self-defence claim is really just a departmental whitewash during an election year. It doesn't help that Karp is also up to his neck in two other politically charged, high-profile cases that are shaking the city to its core - one involving a slain Jewish diamond merchant, the other a murderer who is stalking the homeless.
Meanwhile, with his wife Marlene blindly enjoying her winning from the Internet stock boom while his daughter Lucy insists on volunteering at the shelters where the serial killer may very well be lurking, Butch hasn't got it so great at home either. Desperate to find the ruthless killer before the violence strikes his own family, Karp must negotiate a delicate path through a system of corruption and conspiracy that threatens to block his every attempt at justice.
