Otto Penzler and the Mystery Writers of America Present A Time of Predators by Joe Gores, winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best First Novel
The gang was restless, just looking for idle fun. They roughed up a man they thought was a homosexual--but their game got out of hand and their victim was blinded.
It was Paula Halstead's bad luck to witness the attack and catch a glimpse of one of the boys. After they got through with her, she killed herself.
The police have no leads and can't find the culprits. Paula's husband hires a private investigator to do what the police haven't been able to-with no success.
Curt Halstead refuses to give up
he will have his vengeance on the men who raped and tortured his wife, even if it means entering into their world of sex, violence, and murder.
