A killer who is brutalizing innocents and the elderly in World War II Detroit is tracked by a determined cop, who must not only try to keep the peace and rescue the city from a maniac, but also quiet his own internal demons

Blackwell North Amer
A tough town in a tough time - Detroit during World War II was where the United States' furious effort to out-manufacture the Germans and Japanese occurred. Industry imported workers to replace men gone to war - Southern whites and blacks working side by side for the first time. Detroit had it all: rationing, the black market, the Mafia, fortunes to be made; a new kind of jazz for seething summer nights - a powder keg.
Through this tense, troubled world cuts a killer, a self-appointed soldier savaging ordinary people, the defenseless. Lieutenant Zagreb's most important job is to keep the city from exploding, then to catch a mad killer with a cop roster of 4-Fs and near-retirees, and, finally, he has to save his own soul. He cannot succeed at all three.
