A rollercoaster ride with NYPD Detective Jack Yu, illuminating the underground world of Chinatown gambling, smuggling, and protection

Jack Yu is one of the few ethnically Chinese officers in the NYPD. Now Jack has been promoted out of the Chinatown Precinct. With multiple murders occurring within days of his transfer, the Ninth Precinct isn’t less violent, per se, but at least Jack doesn’t know most of the perps. When a bloody shootout goes down in Chinatown though, the upper echelons of the NYPD reach out to him for help squelching the escalating gang violence, and Jack learns he cannot get away from Chinatown’s criminals—his old friends—for long.
