Abstract:

Scene: Detroit. Time: The present. Action: Somebody is methodically knocking off all the top mobsters in the city. Sergeant "Fang" Mulheisen has another tough case on his hands. First Big Sid, a local mobster, gets whacked at close range right outside the gate of his suburban mansion. Clearly, this was the work of a professional. A neat job, leaving no leads. Next Frosty Tubman, a mob heavy, and four of his henchmen are mowed down in a parking garage. This messy.

Execution leaves plenty of clues ... all leading nowhere. Finally, drug lord Billy Conover and all of his bodyguards are terminated while exiting his favorite restaurant. This gruesome hit is done with an "alley sweeper," a sawed-off 12-gauge automatic shotgun. Who is responsible for the slaughter? The word is out that there is serious mob money missing, and the cops think the killings are related. Mulheisen suspects otherwise when he finds himself drawn into the.

Domestic quandary of an old high school friend, Bonny Lande. Her husband is an obnoxious, unstable, and highly suspect "businessman" who has gotten involved with the mob in a dangerous way. If Mulheisen doesn't solve this case in a hurry there will be more bloodshed. And while Mulheisen is working against the clock in the name of the law, his nemesis, Joe Service, the highly skilled "freelancer" of the criminal world, is doing some investigating of his own.
