SOMETIMES BRUTAL, SOMETIMES BLOODY, THIS STRAIT-LACED POLICE PROCEDURAL WILL HAVE YOU TURNING PAGES AT LIGHTNING SPEED.
Phoenix, Arizona Detective Russ Temple has a new case-two burned corpses in a house apparently victimized by arson. But before he can make headway, he's tasked with forming a brand-new squad within the department's Violent Crimes Bureau.
The Major Crimes Squad is to handle headline-making cases that the city wants closed-and fast. They'll also be expected to track down and bring in the worst of the worst as Temple quickly learns when their newly-formed squad is handed its first high-priority case-the days-old death of the mayor's son from a fentanyl overdose.
Investigating these two cases pits the Major Crimes Squad against drug dealers, an outlaw motorcycle gang, and the newest-and most dangerous-face of organized crime in the city. From saguaro-studded hillsides to the sun-splashed streets of Phoenix, no criminal is safe from their reach.
But that notoriety has a downside, for each squad member is a target now, too...
