Description

The victim had a knife in her chest, and the husband didn't even try to disguise the fact that he was glad. From the very beginning, Detective Steve Carella of the 87th Precinct is sure that someone was hired to make the killing look like an interrupted robbery. Then the dead woman's secrets start to spill out of the closet and Carella and Bert Kling find themselves entering the city's sexual underground to discover the truth.show more
