Chicago is steeped in racial unrest, gangland warfare is raging, the police department is under investigation by the Justice Department, and well-respected Public Defender Harry West has been dealt a devastating blow while trying to come to grips with his purpose in life. It ultimately falls on Harry’s love interest, Homicide Detective Lyndi Carnes, to try to quell the murderous rampage sweeping the city. The tough and tenacious cop elicits help from a young officer in the Gang Enforcement Unit with a troubled past and a gun-toting old man who wants nothing more than to cleanse his long-suffering neighborhood of the criminal element. Stark, gritty and wrought with emotion, Peace Road is another profound thriller by Brad Spencer, author of The Upshot.
