They called Tulsa detective Chuck Sasser "Columbo" for his uncanny ability to solve murders. In Homicide!, Sasser brings us into his raw, grim world: the psychopaths and lowlifes who haunt our streets, the gruesome details of dead bodies, the killers who are out on parole and free to kill again, and the terrible, mind-bending toll homicide investigators take on a cop and his family. One case possessed Chuck Sasser as no other would. For nine years, he searched for the vicious serial killer who had assaulted and murdered three young women. He had few clues, leads or suspects - but the similar patterns of death and mutilation and the sheer savagery of the crimes drove him relentlessly on. Through a tough detective's eyes, this book brings to life the ugly realities, black humor and battle-scarred idealism of a veteran cop's world. This is life on the front lines, the real battle against the lawless insanity that is threatening our cities and towns across the USA.
