Mathis Cross, the hard-driving police commissioner, cleaned up a corrupt city and a more corrupt police force. Taking Gen. Patton’s advice to heart, his motto is ‘lead me, follow me, or get the hell out of my way’.
Given that the mayor appoints the police commissioner–not surprisingly, Mathis has a keen interest in the upcoming mayoral election. As do the wealthy politicos accustomed to running the city and determined to get rid of Mathis Cross once and for all.
As her sneering detractors declare, Gracie D’Amico hasn’t so much as run for prom queen, much less mayor. Her shy demeanor makes her an unlikely candidate at best. To his surprise, the abrasive, accomplished street fighter finds himself drawn to the shy but principled candidate. Taking a chance, Mathis put his powerful thumb on the scale, all but ensuring her election.
When Gracie proves to be an accomplished politician, the criminals who can’t afford to lose, prepare to take her down–permanently. In that only their nemesis, the police commissioner, stands in their way, they decide both Gracie and Mathis will have to go.
