An 87th Precinct mystery. .

A serial killer who doesn't meet the profile - he uses a gun, and only selects victims over 50 years of age - and has struck five times in two weeks. Steve Carella and the detectives of the 87th Precinct must find what the victims had in common before the killer strikes again.

It started with the blind violinist - shot twice through the head at point-blank range in the alley outside his dingy restaurant. But it's only when the omelette lady gets shot with the same gun in the same way twenty-four hours later that the police really start to take notice. But Steve Carella and the boys at the 87th Precinct always seem to be one step behind the killer, for while the gun is the same, none of the victims seem to be related in any way. And why is the killer heard to introduce himself as 'Chuck' before pumping bullets into their bodies?
