Why would a man whos willing to fork out ten thousand dollars to bail an accomplice out of jail be all set to kill him straightaway afterwards? Well, youd better ask Augey Wilson, a small-time but enterprising arms trafficker whos gotten it into his head to pull off a big job: hes teamed up with a brutal killer and now hes strewing corpses all over the city. And Nick? If it were up to him and Marvin, time would be running out for Augey, but the men from the Central Precinct clash with the unfathomable mysteries of the FBI, who issue an irrevocable veto against the investigation So thats the end of the affair? Absolutely not! Not even the Feds would be able to stop Nick and Marvin when theyre on the hunt and the trail is still steaming with blood!
