How would you catch a serial killer with only your badge, your wits, and a shaky sense of right and wrong? It's 1987, and a world before cellphones and DNA. Former Army Ranger and Vietnam vet, divorced Danny Mangan is a Chicago cop weary from fifteen years on the force. But he can't rest now he's trailing a serial killer with a penchant for attacking African-American prostitutes - a grim world of deception where everyone has a public price and a private fix."--Page 4 of cover.
