Plot summary

Homicide Lieutenant Lindsey Boxer is still recovering from the recent loss of her fiancee and is just returning to the force when she is called in to investigate a series of murders that include an 11-year old girl and an elderly woman. Through her investigations she discovers a connection to a jail-hate gang called Chimera. After another police officer is sniper-killed and then her boss is murdered, the trail leads to the ex-cop Frank Coombs.

To further complicate all of the Women's Murder Club ladies, Jill is pregnant, Claire becomes a target for the Chimera killer, Cindy starts dating the murdered girl's pastor and Lindsey's father shows up.

Finally after chasing the trail of Frank Coombs, Lindsey trails the real killer, Rusty Coombs - the son of Frank Coombs, to a tower on a college campus where he has opened fire and killed several students. Rusty is getting revenge for all that has happened to his father and no longer cares if he lives or dies. Lindsey kills him at the tower. As an epilogue, Lindsey receives a postcard from her father in Mexico saying sorry for lying to her about his crooked past and that he has bought a boat and named it Buttercup, his pet name for her.
