Chicago‚ 1979. On the heels of one of the harshest blizzards ever to hit the city‚ five people have been murdered at a train stop.

One of the victims is Rabbi Nathan Wald‚ a political activist who may have been targeted by the Illinois Neo-Nazis. Detective David Beckman is assigned to the case for all the wrong reasons. He’s new to Homicide and unwelcome by his supervising officer‚ longtime veteran Sergeant Tom Regan.

They are two men with different backgrounds‚ and very different worldviews. Together they’ll have to wade through all the lowlifes‚ haters‚ and sleazy politicians of Chicagoland to find the killer.
