Theresa Schwegel follows her award-winning Officer Down with the tale of a rookie
Chicago cop whose desire to be one of the boys sees him getting into something way
over his head.


Officer Ray Weiss is a cop’s son, a cop’s grandson. All he’s ever wanted is to follow in their
footsteps. And when he finally gets to wear the badge, it seems everything is falling into

But first Ray needs to pass his initiation test. He’ll have to break the law to earn the respect
of the team. It goes against everything he believes in, but he has no choice and when it all
goes wrong, he can’t help but think this isn’t a coincidence.

Faced with a dead body and forced to make a false arrest, Ray begins to wonder if being one
of the boys is worth it.
