(From the publisher):
Usually, killers are in a hurry. Sometimes they are in a rage. And in the 87th Precinct, when the first cops come to the murder scene, they see the chaos and the horror left behind. Then they see the clues ... Shotgun.
Nothing makes more of a mess than a shotgun to the face. And in this case it happened twice, thinly disguised as a murder/suicide. Once they're over the shock, Detectives Carella and Kling quickly line up a suspect and start hunting him down. But then another murder strikes the 87th Precinct and someone robs the dead couple's apartment. Now the truth behind a double shotgun slaying is turning even messier — and deadlier — than before...
