Mason "Mace" Perry wants nothing but to be a cop. But that's not so easy for someone who has already lost her badge and spent time in jail for a crime she didn't commit. But when a young idealistic lawyer who works at a major D.C. firm comes to her after finding the dead body of a woman he works with, Mace thinks this might be her break. If she can get to the bottom of this odious crime, she might be able convince the powers that be to let her back on the force. Unfortunately the crime is more diabolical than it first appears, as are the consequences for those who try to interfere.
