This gritty New York thriller, based on the bestselling novel of the same name, features the adventures of undercover NYPD cop Willy Diaz. When an old friend is savagely murdered in Washington Square, Diaz sets out to solve the crime and avenge his friend's death. Along the way he reluctantly accepts the assistance of Esme Pinyero a beautiful investigative reporter and mutual friend of the murdered man.
