Description

A tough town in a tough time, Detroit during World War II was where the United States furiously tried to outmanufacture the Germans and Japanese. Industry imported workers to replace men gone to war-with Southern whites and blacks working side by side for the first time. Through this tense, troubled world cuts a killer, a self-appointed soldier savaging ordinary people, the defenseless. Lieutenant Zagreb's most important job is to keep the city from exploding, but his job doesn't stop there. He must catch a mad killer with a cop roster of 4-Fs and near-retirees, and he has to save his own soul. But, he can't succeed at all three.

Professional reviews

"This thoroughly researched novel set in wartime Detroit presents an epic assortment of characters involved one way or another in "Kilroy murders." The deranged perpetrator leaves the GI slogan "Kilroy was here" at each crime scene. Narrator Garrick Hagon adopts a tough-guy cynicism that sometimes gets in the way of the mood of individual scenes. His characterizations and attempts at ethnic accents are sometimes offensively cartoony. Otherwise, he gives a workmanlike, if unremarkable, reading. Sound quality of these tapes is uneven with arbitrary shifts in volume and balance. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
