A terrifying childhood abduction has left California copy Rachel Simmons with a burning desire to see the law upheld. And nothing will stand in her way--not even the abuse the authority she witnesses at the hands of a fellow officer. Now Rachel has violated the most sacred law within their ranks--the blue code of silence.
