There’re dead bodies everywhere, piles of parts and brains and blood and while Det. Rafael Aponte has a pretty good idea who’s slaughtering gang-bangers all over the Bronx, the answer is impossible.
Or is it?
Aponte and his partner, Tico Velez, track the murder weapon from the first killings back to a cop who was killed in the line of duty. When they track down the cop’s widow, she reveals her 19-year-old daughter, Maria, was recently kidnapped, raped and hurled out of a moving car onto the Cross Bronx Expressway, leaving her paraplegic and in a coma.
Making matters more confusing is the fact the murderer Aponte and Velez are looking for fits Maria’s description.
Blending the best cop dramas and adding a twist of the supernatural, co-creators Michael Avon Oeming (Powers, Thor) and Ivan Brandon (NYC Mech) deliver a truly engrossing and compelling crime book.
