The Sisterhood: a group of women bound by friendship and a quest for justice. Now their male allies, the Men of the Sisterhood, have formed a top-secret organization of their own, with the same goal of helping the helpless and righting the wrongs of the world . . .

Since investigative reporter Dennis West joined forces with the men of the Sisterhood, he’s helped fight corruption and greed on behalf of underdogs everywhere. He never expected to be recruiting his band of brothers for a personal mission, until an old friend grows certain that his life is in danger.

In college, Toby Mason was a whip-smart nerd—nothing like the buff, well-groomed new Toby reaching out to Dennis today. Toby is working as a dancer at the Supper Club, one of a string of venues that offer five-star cuisine followed by entertainment courtesy of Chippendale-style hunks. The owners, Pilar and Gabriel Sanders, have expanded their empire through tours, contests, and calendars. But Toby suspects the Supper Clubs offer a convenient front for a major drug trafficking operation—and those suspicions have become known to his employers. Result: Toby is being watched, and he fears it’s only a matter of time before he’s eliminated.

At the headquarters of BOLO Consultants, their top-secret organization, Dennis, Jack, Abner, Ted, Harry, and the rest of the crew gather to formulate a plan. It’ll mean going deep undercover, but the men of the Sisterhood are breaking out their most impressive moves to stop a criminal network that’s stayed two steps ahead of justice for too long . . .
