The Unreal McCoy
Detroit Police would rarely be described as 'guardian angels' but Detectives Albert McCoy and Otis Springfield become exactly that to a rookie private investigator. When Michael O'Conner's inexperience and lack of 'street smarts' lands him in the hospital, unconscious from a brutal beating, McCoy expands his investigative role to include filling in the gaps in the ex-insurance investigator's real-world education.
The attempt to find the man who attacked O'Conner exposes a previously unknown insurance fraud and jewelry theft ring masterminded by a ruthless murderer.
The trail takes the trio from the streets of Detroit to the north woods of Michigan where a crucial piece of evidence is discovered that points to a most unlikely suspect.
