About The Book
A trio of callous murderers. A seasoned officer charged with connecting the bloody dots.
Phoenix, 2006. Detective Clark Schwartzkopf never flinched from delivering justice. Investigating arbitrary shotgun violence, the veteran cop was quick to make disturbing links to a chilling streak of cold-hearted shootings of people and animals. Convinced he finally had the perpetrators within reach, Schwartzkopf battled interference from intrusive feds and nosy reporters, all while the dead and wounded kept coming.
This expert investigator’s first-hand account of a blood-stained hunt for criminals reveals the inner workings of law enforcement and a detective’s extraordinary care for over thirty-five victims. Unpacking the case with meticulous scrutiny and remarkable storytelling, Schwartzkopf reveals the wanton pathology of a psychopath and the undercover moves it took to catch and convict the killers, including the heavy toll of pursuing them day and night.
“This is the best crime book I've ever read, fiction or nonfiction, bar none. Not only is it a great story for entertainment, it should be mandatory reading and study for anyone aspiring to be a detective, investigator, or crime writer.”
—Sergeant Andy Hill, Public Information Officer, 26 years Phoenix Police Department (retired)
