A twelve-year veteran of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and one of the few Muslim-Americans on the force, he's unafraid of bending the rules in the pursuit of justice. But now Ash wants out. He's finished law school and is aiming to become a prosecutor. The last thing he wants is to become embroiled in a new homicide investigation.That changes when he hears that the mother of one of his daughter's friends was murdered in front of her home-a crime that members of his department would seemingly rather ignore than investigate. Ash launches an inquiry and quickly becomes entangled in a case involving a dangerous mix of election-year politics, crime, and street justice. And what he finds may have repercussions for the entire city . . .
