City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit (Paperback)
Clement Mansell knows how easy it is to get away with murder. The cool killer is already back on the Detroit scenethanks to some nifty courtroom moves by his lawyerand he's feeling invincible enough to execute a crooked judge on a whim. Lieutenant Raymond Cruz thinks the Oklahoma Wildman crossed the line long before this latest outrage, and he's determined to see that the hayseed psycho meets an end he deserves, with a gun pointed at him. But that means a good cop, having to play somewhat fast and loose with the rules . . . in order to maneuver Mansell into a wild Midwest showdown that he can't walk away from.
