Mike Gallagher is acting head of Homicide, Hollywood Division, when five people are murdered on Rainbow Drive in Laurel Canyon... and the police helicopter arrives on the scene before anyone could possibly have summoned it. Mike never would have known about the crime except that at the time he's in bed with a brunette who happens to live across the street.
The crime is as strange as it is brutal, and when the police delay calling an ambulance, even though there's a chance to save a dying survivor, Mike knows it's something bigger and dirtier than anything he's ever come up against. And for reasons too deep to express, Mike Gallagher is willing to risk everything -- his job, his reputation, and his life -- to root out an evil whose true extent he can't even guess.
