Description
A tough town in a tough time: Detroit during World War II where the U.S. furiously tried to outmanufacture the Germans and Japanese. Industry importer workers to replace men gone to war--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.

display_descriptionMasquerading as a soldier, a serial killer savages wartime Detroit; it's up to one detective and his ragtag team to stop him As the United States enters World War II, Detroit converts its factories to an "arsenal of democracy," fueling the American war machine. The city's sons leave to join the fight, but one man does not follow. Declared too unstable for combat, he steals an Air Force corporal's uniform. Using the uniform to inspire trust, he talks ration stamp-hoarders into letting him into their homes, where he slits their throats with a bayonet. The newspapers call him Kilroy. On his tail is police Lieutenant Maximilian Zagreb, whose task it is to keep order in a city whose police department has been stripped of everyone but pensioners and army-rejects. Chasing Kilroy will force him far outside the bounds of legal police procedure, but Zag doesn't mind cracking skulls to get results. In wartime, a little bloodshed is inevitable. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Loren D. Estleman including rare photos from the author's personal collection.
