A SNIPER FIRES – CEO DOWN!
MEDIA MAVERICK MURDERED
A New York power couple is shot at their engagement party. The victims: two ambitious conservatives out to seize a mainstream media empire. The attacker: a skilled and relentless sniper-for-hire. Has America’s vicious political divide finally escalated to murder?
CHASING THE ASSASSIN
For NYPD Detective Mack McCormick, this case is personal. When he was a child, Mack’s mother was murdered by political radicals. Has violent extremism now returned to America? Mack and his team track the assassin’s trail, as the CEO Sniper continues his attacks in Manhattan.
A FINALE WITH A TWIST
Finally, at a midtown landmark, Mack must foil the sniper’s plan to hunt down and kill the new hope of the conservative movement. Even after the shooting ends, Mack’s hardest work is just beginning. The action switches to the interrogation room, where Mack tries to piece together the conspiracy. He and his team from the Park East Detective Squad must take to the streets one more time to gather conclusive evidence and close the case.
THE CONSERVATIVE DETECTIVE
Detective Mack McCormick is a sympathetic hero, one who relies on smarts more than brawn. He’s college-educated, savvy and streetwise, a product of the NYPD’s Giuliani-era policing reforms. A political conservative, Mack is a fish out of water in liberal Manhattan, and his politics do impact his love life. When he’s not working on the case, Mack also has his hands full looking out for his fashionable, sophisticated 90-year-old liberal grandmother Francesca, still living on her own and loving every minute of it.
