In the middle of a stifling heat wave, why would an artist intent on committing suicide turn his air conditioning off before taking his life? That's the question troubling Detectives Steve Carella and Bert Kling until more personal--and deadly--questions threaten to tear Kling's life apart.
Certain his wife, Augusta, is cheating on him, Kling sets out on a course from which there is no turning back. Meanwhile a dangerous killer from his past begins a similar path destined to end in retribution. As Carella's case of the mysterious suicide unravels, Kling's personal life explodes in pain and violence.
An Ed McBain classic, this installment of his famed 87th Precinct series is a triple threat as the three storylines weave together with relentless momentum, culminating in a shattering climax that tears open the heart of one of the precinct's finest.
