Here's the blurb
Meet Donald "Lucky" Gibson. He's considered one of the best detectives around, until he joins his new unit, a team of corrupt cops who are just as bad as the criminals they are supposed to be catching. Lucky soon falls into the trap and becomes one more thug with a badge. Years of abusing his position lead to an out of control cocaine habit, the loss of his family, and a love affair with a young runaway prostitute, but Lucky has had enough. After an innocent black man is killed by his white partners, he testifies against them. He uses the media to expose his dirty team, including his captain and the commissioner. Now Lucky is a marked man, and even the mayor wants him dead.
