His wife Alexa leaves him, seeking a divorce for his alleged dalliance with the accused in the case, a well-known Hollywood actress. His son, Chooch, horrified by these events, won’t speak to him.

The department is known for its corruption, in effect the Mayor’s personal goon squad and collection agency. As Shane gets involved, he learns that things are rarely what they seem.
