THE STORY

 

A tangled web ensnares an unlikely group of New Yorkers unaware that they are connected, from cops to criminals to corporate shills, in this thrilling tale…

New York City Detective Lily Sparr is stunned when she is inexplicably moved to the very same precinct that once upon a time had handled her own father’s murder. There, she is assigned to the case of a women's motorcycle club which has been committing acts of violence all over the city. Despite missing her former partner, Miri, and fighting the ghosts of her past, Lily dedicates herself to the case, unaware that her own sister is mixed in with the swirl of violence and chaos. After secretly reopening the file on her father’s death, Lily slowly unravels  threads of history, discovering that both cases lead to corruption and betrayal at the highest levels.
