This first edition of the action-packed urban series centers on a young Brooklyn hairstylist who finds herself in the wrong place at the right time. Growing up in “Do or Die Bed Stuy” Brooklyn, Benita Renee Jenkins has everything going for her – a great job, loving family, loads of friends and the hope of one-day becoming a crime scene investigator. However, things change when she unknowingly crosses paths with Miguel Perkins, a hot secret agent working for a clandestine agency created to throw the book at the most untouchable of bad guys. He is hell-bent on recruiting Benita to infiltrate the life of an ex-gang-banger turned-music- mogul who has built his empire on corruption. When Benita is set-up for a crime she didn’t commit, Perkins gives her a choice … go to jail or come work for him. She knows she must give up her old life to keep the ones she loves safe. With combat training and a full-fledged makeover, this former hair-stylist-turned-secret-agent plans to take down the bad guys one thug at a time.
It has been three months since Benita Renee Jenkins completed her first assignment for a secret organization called DTCU, the Domestic Terrorism Crime Unit. When Agent Jenkins meets young boxer Doug Gibson at a local gym in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, her sixth sense kicks in. Benita soon discovers that Doug's grandmother has been kidnapped by a local gang, and if he ever wants to see her alive again, he must participate in an illegal underground fighting club to pay off a gambling debt owed by his brother Sean. When Agent Miguel Perkins, her boss and lover, warns her to stay clear of any situations not sanctioned by the DTCU, she goes against his command and stops at nothing to solve this case. She will get to the truth, even if it means putting herself and fellow agent Evan Green in the direct line of danger.
