When the battered body of a young woman is discovered, the second corpse that is found, Charlie Resnick becomes involved in the case because his lover had been acquainted with the victim and her abusive husband and investigates the brutality that sometimes accompanies love. 15,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
The battered body of a young woman is found floating in the still waters of a city canal. Police suspect a serial killer, which makes it a case for the newly formed Serious Crime Squad. Not Charlie Resnick's case, then; not his worry.
But soon another body is found, and this time Charlie has a personal interest. His lover, Hannah, knew the murdered woman - knew, too, that her husband was insanely jealous. And very free with his fists. Arguing that her friend was the victim of domestic abuse, not the target of some serial killer, Hannah persuades Charlie to take on the case.
In his ninth venture into urban mayhem, Resnick tackles the all-too-common problem of spousal violence. Investigating the murder, he runs head-on into deeply disturbing questions about the nature of love, about the relationship of abuser and abused, and about our complicity in our own destruction.
