Plot Synopsis

The men and women of Detroit Homicide work the neighborhoods of the once and future Motor City, a rebounding bastion of middle America still saddled with the highest murder rate in the country. This series unearths the crisis and revelation and the heartbreak and heroism of Detroit's finest, including: Det. Louis Fitch, a damaged, driven and wily homicide vet who is the most respected -- and most misunderstood -- man in the division; Det. Damon Washington, Fitch's new partner who finds his first day on the job is a trial by fire, complicated by the imminent birth of his first child; Det. Ariana Sanchez, who emerged from a rough background to become a rising star in the department; Narcotics undercover cop John Stone, a clever, streetwise smooth talker who is paired with the sexy Sanchez in a pairing rife with sexual tension; Sgt. Jesse Longford, a 30-year veteran struggling with his impending retirement from the force and the city he loves; Det. Aman Mahajan, Longford's partner, forming a mismatch of experience & enthusiasm, intellect & instinct, and old school & new world; Lt. Maureen Mason, the head the group who is a strong-willed single mom struggling to balance home and work.
