Winner of the 2006 Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) for Best Mystery/Suspense/Thriller!

This gritty detective thriller, set in New York City, relates one African-American man's riveting quest for truth and redemption.

Framed for murder during a failed drug bust, former NYPD officer John Shannon spends two years in jail before his release on appeal. Eager to find the true killer and clear his name, he enjoys two scant minutes of freedom before being brutally arrested, knocked unconscious, and whisked away to the Office of Municipal Security, run by a former CIA director. Refusing their job offer, Shannon heads home to make amends with his estranged wife and discovers terrifying news: his teenage son J. J., who has become mixed up with a drug gang, has been kidnapped. Shannon's desperate search for J. J. is complicated by a new warrant for his arrest, the mysterious murder of his former partner, and Shannon's personal struggle with anger, violence, and justice.
