A horrific mass murder that invades the lives of victims and victimizers on both sides of the law three cops treading quicksand in the middle. Ed Exley wants glory. Haunted by his father s success as a policeman, he will pay any price, break any law to eclipse him. Bud White watched his own father murder his mother he is now bent on random vengeance, a time bomb with a badge. Trashcan Jack Vincennes shakes down movie stars for a scandal magazine. An old secret possesses him he ll do anything to keep it buried. Three cops in a spiral, a nightmare that tests loyalty and courage, a nightmare that offers no mercy, allows for no survivors. Greed.
