They're dying in the fleshpits in the Windy City. They're all white girls. One young woman is missing. Another is dead.

Hidden in the alleys and back streets and in a three-block long stretch of strip clubs and adult book stores are the men who prey on young women like these: the pedophiles, pimps, and pornographers.When former partners, unlicensed private investigator Big Dick Rickenbacher and Homicide Lieutenant Salvador Castellano, find their cases overlapping in this vi.
