The first season follows Chicago Police Detective Lieutenant Mike Torello and his pursuit of organized crime from Chicago to Las Vegas, circa 1963–64. At the beginning of the series Torello is the head of the Major Crimes Unit (MCU), a squad of hard-boiled cops that includes Detective Sgt. Danny Krychek, Det. Walter Clemmons, Det. Nate Grossman and Det. Joey Indelli. At the center of Torello’s crosshairs is rising young mobster Ray Luca. Initially Luca is an independent thief and killer whose crew, which includes Pauli Taglia and Frank Holman specializes in robberies, burglaries and home invasions. Through his connection to Chicago crime boss Phil Bartoli, Luca catches the attention of national crime figure Manny Weisbord, a character inspired by the legendary gangster Meyer Lansky.

In the second season, Torello and his cops are shocked when Ray Luca and Pauli Taglia reappear in Las Vegas alive and well… and even more shocked to learn that the U.S. government has made a secret deal with Luca and given him immunity in exchange for his cooperation. Assistant Attorney General Hallahan tells Torello that elements within the government have made a marriage of convenience for their own political agenda. If they continue their pursuit of Luca, they will be operating without official sanction. Despite Luca’s outward appearance of propriety, Torello is convinced the gangster chieftain is anything but. When the Strike Force puts him under surveillance, Luca goes to court to get a restraining order. David Abrams argues that Luca’s history of violence justifies the surveillance, but his personal vendetta against Luca for his father’s death becomes obvious, and the judge grants the injunction.
