Burke is contacted by a lawyer who specialises in debunking false claims of sexual abuse of children, or at least so it appears.

He wants Burke to ensure that the first case he takes on for the other side, proving abuse, is rock solid.

Burke contacts an old acquaintance or two, ex-DA Wolfe and Morales, a cop, to try and find out what the story is on this shadowy figure.

Burke -- ex-con, mercenary, occasional killer -- makes his living preying on New York's most vicious predators and avenging their innocent victims. Now, Burke finds himself working the other side of the street, where guilt and innocence are as disposable as the sheets in a Times Square hotel - and just as dirty.
