This is the 23rd Instalment in the Series surrounding the activities of the Murder Squad Detective Joseph Lind and his two young partners Shelley Shields and Dallas Courtney.
Joseph Lind's mentoring skills and tutoring abilities have ensured that at the close of this Investigation Case, the two junior Murder Squad Detectives will be promoted to Detective Grade 2 rating to become a Murder Squad team in their own right.
Every large City has a shadowy “Underworld” where indistinct figures move about while the rest of the City sleeps.
Ignorant and cocooned from the very existence of these other beings.
Most of these ghostly inhabitants have been rejected, ridiculed, removed and ridden from the love and security of the conservative masses. Their disappearance unreported. Their eventual deaths, often in brutal ways, going completely unnoticed. Hardly causing a ripple on the day to day existence of the “normal” members of society.
They are the expendable minority of society.
If their contribution to the world was of great import, would it make any difference to their acceptance?
Their choice of life-style and being? Their parting?
Three brutal bashing homicides occur in close proximity to one another. On the same night. The Victims, inhabitants of this “other-world”.
Are they connected?
Has the crime been committed by those who seek the cleansing of society of these abhorrent “freaks of birth”.
Rejects of what the masses consider the accepted norm?
