Detectives Scott Blade and Coraline Steele work for two different police departments. Drawn together by murder, they rekindle an abandoned love affair while struggling to solve the mystery of who shot the man in the black coat.

Meanwhile, a CIA agent develops a new computer program under the company name Cyber-Safe. The program skims money from the drug trade without being caught. The company owners, Paul and Helena McCormick, have gotten away with it—until the Brazilian Police and KGB discover millions of dollars in a CIA slush fund hidden in offshore bank accounts.

Why did Helena call LAPD and ask for Blade? She needed to escape from the man in the black coat and find her husband, Paul. For Blade and Steele, a single murder now becomes an international crime drama, dealing with the covert activities of the U.S. State Department, cannabis trade, and CIA money laundering.
