The mugger was special. He preyed only on women. He waited in the darkness, coming from behind to snatch their purses. He punched his victims, told them not to scream and, as the women reeled with pain and fear, he bowed, and said "Clifford thanks you, madam."

And patrolman Bert Kling has a personal reason to go after her murderer. A reason that becomes a burning obsession and an easy way for a cop to get killed…
