On one side of the city, a lost boy recalls the day he drowned himself in the bay, yet is somehow alive to tell the tale. On the other side, an determined hooker has a near-fatal run in with a couple of sadist gangsters. She's saved by a mysterious man in black, and the question remains: man or monster?
This is the tale of an assassin. Gangsters from rival sides of organized crime are dropping dead, and the evidence leads to a single perpetrator. The trail of bodies is followed by an intrepid reporter, a clean cop, a smooth enforcer, and a foul-mouthed private eye, all looking for the same person: who is this supernaturally efficient killer?
