  • When you’re in trouble, you call 911.

    When cops are in trouble, they call Nick Ryan.

    Every cop in the city knows his name, but no one says it out loud.

    He doesn’t wear a uniform, but he is the most powerful cop in New York.

    Nick Ryan can find a criminal who’s vanished. Or make a key witness disappear.

    He has cars, safe houses, money, and weapons hidden all over the city.

    He is the heart of the NYPD, the best in the business, a consummate professional.

    But now he has things to lose.

    When a case nearly two decades old comes back to haunt him, Detective Nick Ryan is the only one who can find the answers. But those answers uncover even more danger.

    With professional killers on his trail, and a horrifying truth breathing down his neck, will Nick Ryan be able to end the violence before he loses everything?

    When you’re in trouble, you call 911.

    When cops are in trouble, they call Nick Ryan.

    Every cop in the city knows his name, but no one says it out loud. In fact, they don’t talk about him at all. 

    He doesn’t wear a uniform, but he is the most powerful cop in New York.

    Nick Ryan can find a criminal who’s vanished. Or he can make a key witness disappear.

    He has cars, safe houses, money, and weapons hidden all over the city.

    He’s the mayor’s private cop, the fixer, the first call when the men and women who protect and serve are in trouble and need protection themselves.

    With conflicted loyalties and a divided soul, he’s a veteran cop still fighting his own private war. He’s a soldier of the streets with his own personal code. 

    But what happens when the man who knows all the city’s secrets becomes a threat to both sides of the law?
