Five years ago, a narcotics cop was sent undercover, down into the criminal substructure of the city. He never came back. He went native. Five years later, he’s running the city’s prime drug gang. Today, a second cop, Detective Deena Ransome, in the midst of career flameout, is sent undercover with orders to pull the first one out – In a body bag if necessary. But when she finally reaches down far enough to confront her target, does she kill him where he stands? Or does she take his place?
