Since chucking his FBI badge in Boston Harbor, Rohr’s been working security for wealthy Beacon Hill socialite Sinclair Dryden (Corbin Bernsen, The Punisher). It’s easy money, until Dryden’s dark secrets start to arise, leading Hodge to ask Rohr to investigate someone “so powerful and protected he’s got the DA carrying his water.”

Attorney Siobhan Quays (Lauren E. Banks) experiences the city’s corruption first-hand this season when she takes up a case against a major construction company, while Father Doyle (Mark Ryder in an expanded role) finds his bond with Jenny Rohr strengthened after a crisis of faith.

Also starring Joanne Kelly (Godfather of Harlem), Jill Hennessey, and Ghostbusters legend Ernie Hudson, brace yourself for another brilliantly acted dose of hard-boiled intrigue and thrills.
