(From the publisher):
They broke Joe Derek publicly, and scorched his tough cop's hide.
They broke him from top kick of the vice squad and sent him down to cop Siberia - into the gray world of the alcoholics, the addicts, the grifters - the hustlers of sin.
They sent Derek on the loneliest man hunt of his life.
For somewhere in this twilight zone was the overlord of vice, the corrupter of a city's soul, the man who had ordered the brutal slaying of Joe Derek's best friend.
Derek had to find him, among all his henchmen - and bring him out alone.
