Everyone knows the force is corrupt. Could her old friend have changed so much?
Sam is struck by the beautiful woman Emma has become. But having lost his wife in a tragic accident, he won’t give his heart again. And Emma’s distrust of his chosen profession is clear. If only he can convince her that he’s one policeman the neighborhood can trust.
