Justice is a matter of perspective.
A pleasant Sunday dinner at an Italian restaurant takes a nasty turn for Detective Erin O’Reilly when the waiter slits the throat of a long-time patron. It’s an open-and-shut case, but this murder is only the beginning. All across New York, captains in the Lucarelli Mafia family are being picked off in a series of carefully-orchestrated hits.
Erin and her K-9 Rolf, still recovering from the trauma of their last case, jump back into the action. They’ll need to stay sharp, especially since this isn't the first time they've tangled with the new boss of the Lucarellis, slick mafioso Vinnie Moreno. “The Oil Man” has a knack for slithering out of trouble, and he’s not alone. The Mafia has deep roots in New York City, some of which have insinuated themselves into the ranks of law enforcement.
Street justice is the rule of the day. Amid conflicting codes of honor, Erin finds herself questioning what justice really means, and whether it’s possible to take down the bad guys while staying on the side of the angels. And in the end, as she runs out of options, Erin may be in the most danger from herself.

Erin learned a lot from her partner: stay alert, follow your nose, and once you've got your teeth in them, never let go.
It’s tough working nights with the NYPD. The crime rate is high, the hours are terrible, and forget about a personal life. So when Officer O’Reilly and her K-9 Rolf switch over to the day shift, things are looking up. She’s even able to find time for a new boyfriend.
But when the theft of a priceless painting from the Queens Museum leaves a fellow police officer dead, Erin and her four-legged partner find themselves dealing with dangerous criminals, sleazy art dealers, and obstructive detectives in a race to capture the killers...and just maybe bring closure to a 75-year-old crime.
Who you are in the dark is who you really are
A night you can’t remember was either a really good night or a really bad one. When Erin O’Reilly wakes up in a notorious womanizer’s apartment with a hangover, a new tattoo, and a gap in her memory, she has the feeling she had one of the bad ones. But it turns out New York had a worse night than she did.
A power outage in a city is a dangerous thing, between looting, traffic accidents, and other mishaps. Somebody has tampered with Manhattan’s power grid, plunging the city into darkness. Is it a reckless prank gone wrong? Or something much worse?
An unexpected lead arrives in the form of a young man who walks into the Major Crimes office and confesses to a brutal murder. There’s only one problem; the NYPD can find no evidence the crime took place. Erin will have to rely on her K-9 Rolf to untangle the truth behind a psychopath’s scheme. After all, a dog’s nose doesn’t need light to point the way.
Starting a new job is always stressful, even when bombs aren't involved. NYPD Officer Erin O'Reilly always wanted to be a detective. But on her first day wearing a gold shield, she finds herself investigating the explosive death of a small-time crook. She and her K-9 partner Rolf, together with her new squad of detectives, plunge into a world of gamblers, mobsters, and retired Irish Republican Army soldiers.
It's an Irish cop against the Irish Mob in an intoxicating cocktail of murder, explosives, and betrayal. Can Erin and Rolf solve the killing before the bomber strikes again?
As long as you’re breathing, you’re still in the fight
Erin O’Reilly has been walking a dangerous line. In order to save her lover, smooth-talking gangster and former bomb-maker Morton Carlyle, she’s been pretending to be a dirty cop. Her efforts have worked well—too well. Evan O’Malley and his underlings are convinced Erin is a criminal just like them. But that means, by the unwritten code of the underworld, she’s now fair game.
The O’Malley family is a tinderbox of hatred, resentment, and ambition. When a botched car bombing fails to kill O’Malley enforcer Mickey Connor, the blast sets the whole thing ablaze. The fearsome ex-boxer is sure Erin and her boyfriend are to blame, and he’s not the kind of man to just take a punch. He hits back—hard.
A serious error in judgment puts Erin’s family on the line, pulling her loved ones into the ring. With more than one life hanging in the balance, Erin and her K-9 Rolf will need every bit of strength, skill, and courage to face down their deadliest opponent in a fight without rules or referee, where the winner will be the one left standing.
A man and a teenage girl are found dead in a bullet-riddled motel room. Evidence points to the Russian Mafia. This isn't the first time Erin O'Reilly has tangled with organized crime, but she isn't prepared for the sheer brutality that's waiting for her. She and her trusty K-9 Rolf peel back the curtain on a seedy world of human trafficking and murder. In the streets of Little Odessa, Erin finds men who won't think twice about killing a woman. And this is one place where her gold detective shield will be no protection.
An NYPD detective is always on duty. Erin O'Reilly is just settling down for a drink with her favorite gangster, celebrating her promotion to Detective Second Grade, when she hears the call every cop dreads: "Officer down." Soon Erin and her K-9 partner Rolf are chasing a cop-killer through—and beneath—New York City, racing to stop a lunatic's plan to tear the heart out of her city. To make matters worse, rumor has it there's a dirty cop in Erin's precinct, and the watchdogs at Internal Affairs are sniffing around Erin. Now she'll have to prove herself like never before as terrorists, assassins, and even allies stand in her way as she fights to save Manhattan.
A detective doesn't always have the luxury of giving all her attention to just one case. Erin O'Reilly and her K-9 partner, Rolf, have just started to sink their teeth into their latest investigation—a pair of Scottish gangsters, tortured, executed, and washed up on the rocks—when another mystery intrudes. A beautiful young woman is found dead in a locked hotel room, posed with a bouquet of fresh roses. It looks like a carefully staged suicide, but Erin isn't so sure. Soon she's juggling two cases at once, dodging bullets in a budding mob war while trying to nail down a cunning serial killer—one who just might be stalking her in return.
New Year’s Eve is a time for new beginnings, but it’s business as usual for Detective Erin O’Reilly and her K-9, Rolf. A midnight magic show on Broadway goes horribly wrong and a woman dies onstage. Is it a dreadful accident or an act of murderous sabotage? It’s up to Erin to unravel the web of deception surrounding the death, even as her personal life threatens to spiral into chaos.
She's caught the eye of Irish mobster Morton "Cars" Carlyle, and worse, she's beginning to like him back. It seems obvious that a relationship between a police officer and a criminal is a disaster waiting to happen. But as Erin is coming to discover, in the underworld and on the stage, things are rarely as they seem.

When it comes to love, everyone is compromised
The murder scene looks depressingly ordinary at first; a home-invasion shooting of a real-estate agent. But Detective Erin O'Reilly has a nose for trouble, and this case smells all wrong. It's bad enough that the victim is tied to several sleazy property deals, but the worst of it is the sole witness to the crime; the dead man's girlfriend is Lieutenant Webb's ex-wife.
Erin is no stranger to personal complications, but Webb's entanglements threaten to derail the whole investigation. With her commanding officer compromised, she and her K-9 Rolf will have to take the lead as they try to tear open a case involving street thugs, car thieves, a shady trainer of fighting dogs, and a paranoid white-collar guy in way over his head. It's shaping up to be an ugly dogfight in the streets of Brooklyn.
BONUS — Pinot Noir: A Harry Webb Story
In LA, everyone is playing a role
Harry Webb is sure his life can’t get any worse. After his second wife files for divorce and kicks him out of their house, he’s living out of a suitcase in a cheap LA motel on a diet of cheap booze and cigarettes. His job as a detective with the LAPD has left him burnt out, tired, and overweight. At the end of another long, dreary day, he takes a trip through the cold November rain to his local bar, intending to drink until he forgets how miserable he is.
Then the mysterious, beautiful Maureen Sinclair sidles up to him with a drink and a proposition. It sounds too good to be true; and it is. A gunman takes a shot at him in the parking lot and he returns fire. The next thing Webb knows, he’s killed the man and Maureen has vanished, leaving nothing but questions in her wake.
Now, with a pair of hard-nosed homicide cops angling for him, Webb is on his own, racing through the mean streets of Los Angeles. He’ll have to deal with sleazy film agents, a seedy movie studio, and a woman who is definitely more than she seems.
