Just months on the job, rookie prosecutor Dana Hargrove is faced with an impossible choice between her career and personal relationships. It’s 1988, at the height of Colombian cocaine trafficking in New York City, and Dana has been assigned to a team investigating money laundering by the Cali Cartel.
Dana isn’t happy with her assignment. As the junior member of the team, she’s handed nothing but grunt work, analyzing bank records. But in the course of tracing the flow of dirty money, Dana unwittingly stumbles upon alarming evidence that threatens a close friendship. Left out of the loop by her superiors, she undertakes her own investigation and connects the dots between ambiguous clues. In a few dark days and sleepless nights, Dana questions her loyalty to friends, her employer, and the ethical code she is bound to uphold. As the investigation unravels, Dana and her friends are thrust into a living nightmare of Cartel greed, blood, and retribution.
Thursday’s List explores questions of professional integrity, the insidious influence of cultural biases, and the triumph of personal bonds of friendship between two unforgettable women.
