In the aftermath of a grisly rooftop altercation, Cole's a murder suspect on the loose with a mysterious bounty on his head -- and a homicide case he still can't put down. Complicating matters further is his brother Blake, who's taken it upon himself to find Cole, unaware how deeply he's descended into the criminal underworld. From the quiet hills of Oakland to the boisterous nightclubs in Fillmoe, cops and criminals are set on a collision course in THE BAY's deadliest episode yet.
THE BAY - THE SERIES
Filled with mystery as thick as the Bay's infamous fog, Inspector Cole Hoffer's investigation takes him deep into the most treacherous neighborhoods of San Francisco, Oakland and beyond, as he explores clue after clue, courtesy of a cast of pulpy characters operating in a black market just under our noses. In Hoffer's Bay Area, there's always money to be made, witnesses to be offed, and much bigger crimes to be concealed. After all, the Gold Rush never really ended, it just got deadlier.
For Cole Hoffer, Chuck Hattaran isn't just another name on the homicide unit's Big Board. The murdered lawyer is an affront to Cole's career, his life, and his understanding of himself. That's because Cole knew him. In fact, Cole was having an affair with Hattaran's wife, Mia. And if Cole doesn't figure out who had it in for Hattaran, there's only one person left to point the finger at: Cole himself.
