Plot Synopsis

This one-hour series explores the world of New York City police detectives, where every cop has a secret. Detective Casey Shraege has just been transferred to the NYPD's Homicide unit from Vice and is instantly thrown into a setting of bullets and bodies. As she begins her new assignment, Casey finds that the force is full of secrets, which serves her well, since she's keeping a few of her own. But her first case is not an easy one, as she's assigned to investigate the death of one of the department's own, the former partner of Detective Jason Walsh, who is now her new partner. As the duo seeks out the cop killer, the secrets and eccentricities of the rest of the department begin to emerge. Prankster and social climber Detective Eddie Alvarez has no qualms about stealing cases, as long as he can turn them into front-page stories; partners Eric Delahoy, who is trying to get himself killed in the line of duty, and Leo Banks, an overly cautious officer who refuses to remove his bulletproof vest, are polar opposites; and the very religious Detective Henry Cole is trying to keep his secret past from both his streetwise partner, Alison Beaumont, and Sgt. Brown who is struggling to rid the 2nd precinct of corruption.
