Author: Michael Lewin
Lt. Leroy Powder, Indianapolis PD, investigates a series of gruesome murders and the disappearance of a teenage girl
 
Six burglaries, two assaults, one armed robbery, and a bomb scare all come in at the tail end of Lt. Leroy Powder’s swing shift in the night cover room of the Indianapolis PD—a shift he’s been working for nineteen years. About to wrap up, he gets a call from low-level criminal Johnny Uncle, who claims to have found a body.
 
The cause of death is strangulation. There’s no sign of sexual assault, no apparent motive, and no form of ID on the corpse—including prints because the killer took a sledgehammer to the victim’s hands postmortem. But Powder’s problems have only begun: This body won’t be the last.
