In 1962, Griff and Fats are two homicide detectives for the Bay City Police Department. Before civil rights get between them and the criminals, they hunt down their share of killers and thieves, often crossing the line. Disdained by the force, hated by the underworld, these two walk the tightrope between enforcing the law and becoming worse than the felons they hunt.
Bay City, 1962 — a time of peace and trust, when girls hitch-hiked without a care. But for an ice-hearted killer, it’s a time of easy pickings. When he kills the daughter of a rich power-broker, all hell breaks loose, and he goes on a crazy killing spree to cover his tracks. Griff and Fats, two free-wheeling homicide detectives, begin hunting the monster who tortures and kills.
A routine traffic stop escalates into a mob vendetta, putting a good cop and his wife on the run. When he turns to his friend Vic Powers for help, everything hits the proverbial fan. Powers has already been kicked off the force for “brutality.” Now he’s got an excuse to demonstrate real brutality against some people who deserve it.
In 1963, tough-as-nails Bay City Homicide cops, Griff & Fats, are mired in the most brutal cases of their careers. While they're stalked by an unknown assailant, the detectives hunt a monster killing young women by the dozens.
Action and adventure in the tradition of The Spider and The Executioner! Harry Turner won’t sit on the sidelines any longer. He’s through watching his neighborhoods and fellow New Yorkers suffer. Drug dealers, pimps, and mobsters practically have free reign. When he dons the nightblack disguise of The Nemesis, criminals won’t stand a chance against his brand of Justice.
