Snowstorm in August
Snow. Swirling down in powdery funnels. Blanketing Central Park. In August. Only it wasn’t snow. It was four thousand pounds of uncut cocaine. So begins the war between Joaquín Alboroto, the most powerful drug lord on the planet, and his most hated enemy: the city of New York. But the only NYPD unit trained to go up against this level of terrorism has been disbanded, and the new police commissioner is a bureaucrat, not a wartime commander. The task falls on the shoulders of former NYPD captain Danny Corcoran. A trusted friend recruits Corcoran to a team of former top cops. Funded by four anonymous billionaires, their mission is to stop Alboroto before his next “gift” to the city leaves a million New Yorkers blind.

Detective Kylie MacDonald of NYPD Red, already on-scene as a plus-one, loops in her partner, Detective Zach Jordan to activate Level One mobilization for this PR nightmare.
