In Atlanta Georgia, a cop killer was on the loose and "the 1970s were proving to be a bad decade for police officers. Atalanta had suffered more losses than most. In the past two years, they'd caught five cop killers, though only one of them had seen a the inside of a courtroom." Edward Spivey had walked away a free man despite the damning evidence which declared him anything but innocent. So tensions were already high when officer Don Wesley became the latest victim of the man dubbed the Atlanta Shooter. Amidst all the unrest, two women (one who comes from a long line of cops and another recently widowed) are trying to make a place and career for themselves on the Atlanta police force. Despite the glass ceiling being fully in tact and the good ole boys club being in full swing, the two will attempt to do what 20 male detectives could not--find the missing link that connects all the killings to the Shooter.
What neither of them is aware of is that one of them has caught the eye of the Shooter. His plans for her don't include a quick death. He has other more sinister plans in mind for her. He's just waiting for the right opportunity to present itself.
