Classic Elmore Leonard - a killer is on the loose in a gripping thriller set in Detroit.
Clement Mansell knows how easy it is to get away with murder. The crazed killer is back on the Detroit streets - thanks to some nifty courtroom moves by his lawyer - and this time he´s feeling invincible enough to execute a crooked Motown judge. Homicide Detective Raymond Cruz thinks the ´Oklahoma Wildman´ crossed the line long before this latest outrage, and he´s determined to see that the psycho does not slip through the legal system´s loopholes a second time. But that means a good cop is going to have to play somewhat fast and loose with the rules - in order to manoeuvre Mansell into a showdown that he won´t be walking away from.
