Publisher Description

All of New York City holds its breath as the clock ticks toward October 15, the night when the psychopathic killer known as the Juggler will once again strike, kidnapping, raping, and murdering an innocent young girl. The NYPD task force, headed by Detective Vincent “Gypsy” Tonnelli, is scrambling to unlock the significance of this date in order to catch the killer before it arrives.

Meanwhile, from the shadows, an illiterate and childlike giant isolated from society watches and waits, choosing the right young girl for his plans. When he mistakenly takes the daughter of Luther Boyd, a tough ex-cop and one-time Army officer, the killer has met his match. As the clock runs down, the search intensifies into a savage, fast-paced manhunt through the gritty streets of New York City.
