Summary
In Peter Blauner's Edgar Award-winning first novel, a New York probation officer locks horns with a deadly young drug dealer As a probation officer in a city plagued by drugs, murders, and corruption, Steven Baum supervises marginal criminals-not dangerous enough for prison, but too damaged to go totally free. He watches them, keeps them in line, and once in a long while, helps one improve his life. The job is a vicious grind, but Steven is good at it, and he is about to be rewarded with a transfer to active duty. But first he has to deal with Darryl King. A small-time dealer with big aspirations, Darryl is the kind of thug who makes probation officers want to quit. Although the boy terrifies him, Steven holds out hope for helping him turn his life around. What he doesn't know is that Darryl is a cop-killer-and his troubles have only just begun. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Blauner including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection
Summary
On an urban battleground dangerously divided along racial lines, probation officer Steve Baum is desperately struggling to hold on to the last remaining shreds of his idealism, until Darryl King invades his world. A deranged young sociopath, one of the most bloodthirsty creations of a diseased society, Darryl has come to drag Baum along with him into an inescapable morass of terror and corruption. And as their ravaged city explodes, they will stand face-to-face, mortal enemies trapped together in the heart of a devastating inferno that threatens to consume them both
