In the gritty world of the NYPD, no one’s tougher than Det. Robert Ironside (Blair Underwood). He’s a fearless cop who won’t stop until the guilty are brought to justice. He and his trusted, handpicked team of specialists — Virgil, Holly and Teddy, as well as his former partner Gary and boss Det. Ed Rollins — will do whatever it takes to solve New York’s most difficult and notorious crimes. As a detective, Ironside’s instincts are second to none, and those around him have to stay on their toes if they want to keep up… because when his spine was shattered by a bullet two years ago, Ironside swore he’d never let a wheelchair slow him down. Nothing gets in his way.
Undeterred by a spinal injury that leaves him confined to a wheelchair, Detective Robert Ironside leads his elite, handpicked team on a hunt to find a young broker's killer.
Whilst on the trail of a serial killer know as App the Ripper who's been tracking his victims down online, the team narrowly miss their man. Two figures who flee the scene, give them another lead to follow. As they track down the girl, they soon come to realise it's a girl missing from years ago.
After Ironside and Holly interrupt the robbery of a poker game, they follow the trail to a poker pro with a drug problem; Ironside considers how much faith to put in Teddy.
Ironside and his team, including Virgil, Holly and Teddy race the clock to clear the murder of a New York University honor student, before a plea bargain will set a hit man free. In the process, Ironside seeks Gary's expertise, but being back in that mindset could prove too much for him to handle.
