In spite of her spotless reputation, three male police officers have accused her of soliciting sex for promotions. For the investigation that follows, Gomez turns to an old friend, Rik Dudek, to act as her attorney. She insists that the accusations are designed to destroy her career and empower her enemies.

But before that, Pinky will get drawn into the deepest recesses of the city’s criminal networks and unravel some dark secrets.
