Joe Rizzo, a veteran of the NYPD, passes on the knowledge of his years of experience to his ambitious new partner, Mike McQueen, over a year of riding together as detectives in the Sixty-second Precinct in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. His refrain: ‘There is no right. There is no wrong. There just is.’

Whatever case they’re facing, whether a street robbery or a murderous assault, Rizzo’s saying always seems to bear out.

When the two detectives are given the delicate task of tracking down the runaway daughter of a city councilman, who may or may not be more interested in something his daughter has taken with her than in her safety, the situation is much more complex, and potentially much more dangerous, than it first appears.
