Abe Lieberman and his Irish partner, Bill Hanrahan, investigate the kidnapping of a government witness supposedly shielded under the federal witness protection program.

Blackwell North Amer
Abe Lieberman, the long-suffering and canny Chicago cop, relies on his brains and his heart rather than brawn to solve the cases that come his way.
A figure out of Talmudic lore - "endearing, wise in his crotchets, weary with his wisdom," Abe Lieberman is an honest cop in a town not necessarily known for its honesty. He is an Everyman whose love for his family is only matched by his quiet, zealous commitment to justice. A commitment that is sorely tested on the mean streets of Chicago. A moral man, he is sometimes faced with ethical choices in order to see that justice - but perhaps not the letter of the law - is meted out.
The Big Silence takes Lieberman and his Irish partner, Bill Hanrahan - the Rabbi and the Priest, as they are known on the streets - on a journey that will test their consciences to the limit. When the young son of an informant in the government's witness protection program is kidnapped and a grisly death occurs, they will have to make some hard choices to set things right. And Lieberman may have to bend the rules to help his partner, whose time has come to face the demons that have been dogging his steps for too many years.
