One cop who lives by the law. Another who kills in the name of it.
Sixteen NYPD officers are dead, their final bullets pumped from the steel barrels of their own guns. But thirty-year veteran Ed Gavin and his partner Jon Strega aren't sold on suicide. They're calling it something far worse: a case of cold-blooded murder.
Maria Alvarez is a gorgeous 19th Precinct beat cop with on- target aim and a licenses to kill...and kill again. She has nursed a lifetime of private demons into an unforgiving obsession that will exact a deadly retribution. And Gavin and Strega have just stepped into her line of fire.
Three cops torn between justice and revenge, conscience and desire, are about to cross the thin blue line...as a hair- trigger impulse turns a badge into an easy target and a woman's long-buried secret erupts at point-blank range-- with no room for mercy....
As shattering as a gunshot, Blue Justice is the dead- on, white-knuckle thrill-read of the year.
