When no evidence of Trovic is found on the scene and the bullet is shown to have come from Mack's own gun, the Department labels Fred's death as a case of friendly fire. Back at the station, it seems no one believes Mack's account. Not Internal Affairs investigator Alex O'Conner, and not even Mack's lover, whose best attempts at support leave her as cold as the wind whipping across Lake Michigan. Somehow, justice will be served.
With the Department looking to quiet the bad press, Mack can't count on anyone to help her track down Trovic. Even if she can somehow find him in the dark recesses of Chicago's underworld, can she prove that Trovic was the shooter? With her back to the wall and her career at stake, now it's time for Mack to take matters into her own hands to clear her name - and avenge her partner's death.

"Schwegel's sympathetic protagonist and fast-paced action turns out an impressive, gripping first novel." (Publishers Weekly)
"Credible cop background and evocative Chicago scenes add to the pleasures of this memorable first novel." (Booklist)
Lead character is way to wimpy to be a Chicago cop, both as a professional and in her personal life. As a Chicagoan, I was looking forward to local color, so mispronouncing places/streets was distracting. The story/mystery is ok, lead character is however, pathetic.
Great job by the narrator getting across the emotions of Samantha Mack.
Being a Male I found Samantha's whiny, distrusting
personality one that I would run screaming from.
Definitely a chick read. Maybe Lifetime TV will or has made a movie of it.
