The Plot:
 
What would you do if you came face-to-face with your child’s killer?
 
Grace Travis is a wife, mother of two, and the bay area’s best undercover detective. She’s adept at transitioning between suburban life and the Oakland docks where she’s been embedded for months with a criminal enterprise run by James “Jimmy” Laszlo and his sons, Max and Alec. Grace is abruptly pulled out of the field when her son, Sam, is killed in a drive by shooting. Her life is shattered.
 
Four months later…
 
The investigation into Sam’s death has gone cold. Grace, guilt-ridden and unable to accept the loss, has begun to search for answers. With the help of her mentor, Mitch, a link is uncovered between Sam’s death and Jimmy Laszlo’s organization. Unable to convince her superiors that she is fit for duty, Grace goes ROGUE slipping back undercover as “Jackie Hays” in Laszlo’s gang. When Laszlo discovers Grace’s true identity, thru his mole in the police department, they make an unholy alliance. Someone close to Laszlo has been working against him. He’s willing to spare Grace’s life, and help her find Sam’s killer, if she helps him uncover the traitor in his organization. It’s a deal she can’t refuse.
