After a mugging gone wrong, Detective Michael Bennett becomes public enemy no. 1 when the citizens of New York rally around the dead shooter’s family. Amidst the controversy and media chaos, Bennett must wait for his name to be cleared. Though he is suspended from active duty, the Mayor has a secret mission for Bennett with an irresistible incentive. Find the Mayor’s missing daughter, and Bennett’s beloved son Brian will be released from prison. Desperate to get back to work and free his son, Bennett sets out to solve the mystery of Natalie’s disappearance.

As links start emerging to a dangerous underground hacking network, Bennett must go beyond his jurisdiction to bring Natalie home.
The mayor of New York has a daughter who’s missing. Detective Michael Bennett has a son who’s in prison. Can one father help the other?
Bennett and the mayor have always had a tense relationship, but now the mayor sees in Bennett an exceptional investigator who might be willing to take on a case that needs to be kept under the radar. The two men strike the deal.
Sources lead Bennett to a homicide in the Bronx. The victim has ties to a sophisticated hacking operation – and also to the mayor’s missing daughter. But this murder is part of a serial killing spree, one with national security implications. And suddenly Bennett is at the centre of a dangerous triangle anchored by NYPD, FBI and an international crime organization.
Michael Bennett has always been an honourable man, but sometimes honour has to take a back seat. Survival comes first.
