1st ed.
Not all police officers are bad and rarely does an officer join the force already corrupt. But, Chicago police Sergeant Joe Donegan has a plan. To him, the police badge is a license to steal, an easy way to get whatever he wants without consequence.Donegan knows where to strike and he knows which criminals will give under pressure. When Donegan walks into a northside tavern expecting his take, he gets more than he bargained for. City Councilman Skip Murphy is leaving the tavern with barmaid Sophie Novak. When Sophie disappears, Donegan volunteers his services to Murphy . . . for a price.Sophie's sister is nervous. She is the doctor of Police Commander Larry Cole, so when her sister vanishes, she asks him for help. It doesn't take long for Cole to figure out where Sophie was last seen, and with whom, but Murphy uses his political clout to stall the investigation.With the corrupt Donegan's help, Murphy seems unstoppable, as Cole discovers when Murphy's main political rival also vanishes. And Murphy is no longer happy with the relatively small potatoes of Chicago politics. He has bigger plans, and those plans involve Congress.Will Cole be able to stop Murphy and Donegan before it's too late? Does a Chicago police commander have the clout to bring down an American institution? It will take all of Commander Larry Cole's resources to stop Murphy and when secrets from his past are exposed, the ruthless Donegan may use them to threaten Cole's future.
