"Chicago, 1979. The city has just experienced one of the worst snowstorms in decades. Public transportation is shut down; garbage is piling up, uncollected; cars remain entombed in snowdrifts. In the midst of this, five people are shot and killed at a train stop. David Beckman is one of the first homicide detectives to arrive at the scene of the murder. He is young and new to the homicide squad, a recent transferee from vice. He's Jewish and is not welcomed by the older detectives. It's soon determined that one of the victims of the shooting is Jewish activist Nathan Wald. Wald had been a controversial figure, a celebrity of the 1970s, a Jew who advocated violence and attacks on Soviet embassies. Other detectives arrive, including Lieutenant Gregory, Chief of Detectives Stumbaugh, and Sergeant Tom Regan. Regan is an Irish American in his late forties, very much a straight arrow and devout Catholic. He is rightly considered the best detective in homicide, but he hasn't worked with Beckman yet"--Jacket flap.
