In the turbulent Chicago of 1917, attorney Nora Wolfe Walker must defend a black man accused of the brutal murder of an Irish union leader in order to prevent a racial blood bath. In the midst of the heated and publicized trial, Nora finds more than just a friend in Sergeant Michael Francis Casey, a handsome Irish cop who believes as Nora that the truth may only lie in the murky corridors of city hall. Gang leader and future mayor, Richard J. Daley, is a prime suspect in the murder, and a young mobster, Alphonse Gabriel Capone, becomes an unexpected ally. In a city pressed into a world war and riddled with corruption, Nora and Michael put their lives in jeopardy to discover the real killer and stop a deadly race war that could destroy Chicago and delay precious supplies from reaching our doughboys in the trenches of Western Europe.
