"Rocksburg's new mayor is a 34-year-old physical fitness fanatic, a moralizing do-godder -- and a man very eager to spiff up the police departement. And that's just the beginning of Police Chief Mario Balzic's troubles.
An unidentified young woman is shot down on the streets; the apartment of a known drug dealer is torn apart as federal narcotics agents sit idly by; and Balzic finds that his closest ally is the Reverend Rutherford Rufee, a preacher who doubles as Rocksburg's vice lord. As Balzic struggles to get to the bottom of the case, he finds himself in a plea-bargaining deal with a spaced-out food freak, teaching the priggish mayor a lesson or two, and -- downing more than enough at Muscotti's Bar -- discovering a little bit about his own innocence.
