A good Homicide Detective always sets out to answer the H and five Ws of a crime: How, Who, What, Where, When, and Why. With the typical murder investigation, most homicide detectives would be satisfied if they could prove HOW the homicide occurred, WHO committed the murder, WHAT weapon was used, and establish WHERE and WHEN the crime occurred. But that would not be enough for Joe Morgan, the retired Homicide Chief whose grandson, Sean, was intentionally run down and killed by a Hit and Run driver. To further complicate matters, Joe’s son, Mike, Sean’s father, is also a Lieutenant on the Police Department. The Police Department’s finding that the killer is deceased has all but closed the investigation. However, it had been unable to find a motive for the murder, and this of course, this leaves open the possibility that either Mike or Joe may have been the actual intended target. And to Joe, this screams for the WHY to be answered. Until the motive is discovered there is a chance that whomever directed the killing would strike again.

When the Department’s Homicide Bureau is unable to completely close the case, the retired Homicide Chief turns to the Coterie, a menagerie of mostly retired supervisors and detectives who utilize their ‘old school’ techniques and ingenuity to find ALL the answers. Along the way the ensemble cast of characters uncover the reason why Sean was killed, and also solves several other murders, a cold-case homicide, and discover corruption in the Police Department. The story leads Joe Morgan and the Coterie into their next series of adventures.
