A story of two brothers, Nick is the superintendant of the Chicago P.D., while Aldo is a bad cop who is envious of his brother's success. After a lifetime of sabotaging his own career, Aldo decides to do the same to his brother's.

#2 in the Suze Figueroa series.

Suze Figueroa, Chicago PD - Suppressed evidence from an illegal raid on Black Panthers 30 years earlier, surfaces to threaten Police Superintendent Nick Bertolucci, one of the youngest cops on the raid.

Pretty good but not top notch. Dips into the assassination of Fred Hampto in Chicago as background but is not illuminating. Basic revenge story where the bad guy unexpectedly gets his punishment.
