Blackwell North Amer
In a landscape of neon-lit cocktail lounges and back-alley shadows, a topless dancer is found savagely beaten to death. Her mobster boyfriend, the pretty-boy kid brother of a powerful boss, has an alibi - but it cuts absolutely no ice with Chicago cop Joe Kiley. Hotheaded and tenacious, Kiley convinces his partner, handsome Nick Bianco, to engage in an unauthorized stakeout, confident that the risk will be justified by an arrest. How could Kiley, who's made the bending of rules a career, know that this time events will backfire in such a way as to create a living hell from which he will never quite manage to escape?
