Boyd's new captain, former internal affairs officer Annette Mulcahy, knows of his reputation, she tells him that she will not tolerate it. Annette sends Boyd to an anger management class where he meets Henry Wayne, the high-strung host of a local talk show called Detroit AM. Boyd comes across local drug dealer Latrell Walker and his fast-talking sidekick T. K. Johnson doing a shady deal with a man named Matt Montini. After a brief fight, Boyd discovers that Montini has been working undercover trying to nail Walker and Boyd ruined the sting, that does not sit well with Montini's musclebound partner Useldinger. Sergeant Lewis Strutt steps in to cool things down. After Boyd stumbles upon the theft of $5,000,000 worth of heroin from evidence storage and new partner George Clark begin focusing their efforts on Walker and T. K. Intrigued by what little they have on Walker, they investigate why he has been visiting Shaun Rollins. Henry discovers is. Walker is a computer expert and billionaire whose real name is Leon Rollins — he is Shaun Rollins' brother.

Boyd confronts Leon, who explains that a group of corrupt cops needed a fall guy for a deal gone bad and pinned it on Shaun. It is further revealed that Strutt is the leader of the group, which includes Montini and Useldinger. Leon and his friend Trish have been videotaping the activities of Strutt's gang, hoping that it might help prove Shaun's innocence and get him out of jail. Boyd meets Mulcahy at a parking lot. Montini and some other men try to kill Boyd and Annette. Mulcahy is killed in the chase and Boyd escapes. Boyd calls Frank and tells him that Strutt will be having a meeting at a warehouse in about an hour, to sell the heroin, stolen. Strutt plans to try to sell it to T. K. not knowing that Leon is working against him. Frank promises. Boyd and Daniels show up. Boyd realizes that it is Frank, behind everything. Clark blows barges in with backup, including police chief Hinges. Useldinger shoots Boyd and as he is about to shoot him again, George shoots Useldinger dead. Chief Hinges kills Frank by shooting him four times with a shotgun.

After a fight with Boyd, Strutt grabs a case full of money and runs up to the roof, where a helicopter is waiting. Montini gets the upper hand in his fight with Leon after he damages Leon's vision with cement powder. Leon manages to stab Montini in the leg with a piece of broken glass, before killing him by having his neck impaled on a clothes rack; as the helicopter ladder is dragging Boyd across the roof with Strutt hanging on to the ladder, Strutt falls and is impaled on a metal pipe. At dawn, Leon gives Hinges the videotape that proves the corruption, hoping that the tape will help prove Shaun's innocence. Hinges does not believe the courts will care about the tape, so Hinges had Shaun released from county about an hour before. Boyd decides to stay with the 15th precinct with George as his partner, T. K. becomes Henry's television co-host. The film is based on the book of the same name by John Westermann; the book is set in Long Island, New York.
