Adapted from true stories, BOLITA is the gripping epic of one man's war on Tampa Florida's mafia and government corruption. In the mid-1970s, a determined group of a uncompromising city detectives, an FBI special agent, and an Assistant US Attorney went after an entire police department and the ruthless criminal organization pulling its strings. One man, an untrusting, implacable, bastard of a detective named Bill Brume, risked the entire investigation. It was all or nothing.

"...the mob is coming to us!"
Almost as soon as Bill Brume made detective with Tampa's police department, he became a plague to organized crime. He never imagined, however, that as much as he investigated the mafia, the mafia investigated him. Worse, his investigations would eventually lead him down the loneliest road in law enforcement--Internal Affairs.
But Bill is not alone. Along with a trusted detective friend and a dauntless U.S. Attorney, the probe stretches their skills beyond the breaking point. Training and intuition are no longer enough. This mission means risk!
"Besides, nobody's that married."
As if investigating the mob's corruption of the police department wasn't disdainful enough, Bill subjects himself to face a comprehensive examination of his own morality. Compromise the love of his life? It's unthinkable, or so he thought.
At the same time, the mob has a few problems of their own. Giuseppe Cantonello ran the entire state of Florida for decades, as did his father before him. But he had become too old and out of touch with his soldiers to stop the sins they wished to commit. While Giuseppe relaxed in Central America, those beneath him plotted to take over. Only a few people stood in their way, and the first was Bill Brume.
William "Bill" Brume didn't have much of a plan when he and his high school buddies fled their farms in rural Virginia. In fact, he had no direction at all even after joining the Air Force. When he entered Tampa's Police Department, however, he knew exactly what he wanted to do and exactly how he wanted to do it. Some had other plans.
