A new breed of monster has set up shop in New York. Ruthless, ingenious murderers, they prey on the loved ones of those who live outside the law -knowing full well that criminals will never run to the police no matter how brutal the threat. So other avenues for justice must be explored, which is where Matthew Scudder comes in. Scudder has no love for the drug dealers and poison peddlers who now need his help. Nevertheless, he is determined to do whatever it takes to put an elusive pair of thrill-kill extortionists out of business. For they are using the innocent to fuel their terrible enterprise.
