Part of our Cops season introduced by Robert Senior
When New York detectives Popeye Doyle and Buddy Russo launch a deadly pursuit to bust up a narcotics smuggling ring, they discover a link to France through their European suppliers. After a failed murder attempt on Doyle's life, the loose cannon detective takes his investigation down a new path, one that is far beyond his jurisdiction.
