Captain Lou Rush of the New Orleans police department is the leader of the Tribunal, a band of 10 cops dedicated to eliminating the criminals that fall through the cracks of the justice system. Their success has made them powerful and untouchable in the Crescent City, but that is about to change.
After two decades, the time has come for Lou Rush’s son Nick to join the Tribunal, as aging members are due to retire. However, a fellow officer is killed by the Tribunal, and Nick discovers that his father may have also murdered an innocent man.
For years, Nick’s fiancé Cali Maddox quietly blends into the background. With an agenda of her own, her secrets will force father and son to decide where their true loyalties lie – with the Tribunal or with the love of Nick’s life, because one of them will not survive the aftermath.
