Inspector Tony Hill is a cop on the fast track. He is Detroit's young star detective and the youngest African-American to head the elite Special Crimes Unit. Tony has a good life, a beautiful, independent wife, and a loving son. Neither the pressures of his job nor the constant temptations of his womanizing partner can shake him. But the balance of his life is undone when the mayor orders Tony to catch an elusive serial killer who has captured the public's imagination.
 
A sadistic vigilante murderer with a nasty taste for criminals is on the loose in the city. The media have dubbed him the Handyman because he removes the hands of his victims. Some think he's a rogue cop and others a crime victim gone amok. To many he is a hero. But when Tony uncovers alarming evidence of the killer's identity, the city explodes in a single cry for justice. It is the case of Tony Hill's career, but the shocking revelations awaken other, more troubling demons.
 
Years ago, Tony resolved an intense hostage situation. His acts made him a hero, but only Tony knows what really happened. Now the hunt for the Handyman offers him more than just a chance to stop a killer - it is an opportunity to repair Tony's own damaged soul. Under unbearable pressure, Tony pursues the killer into the inner city. He must gather clues from crooked cops, fugitive felons, and lying witnesses. There is no one he can trust, for this is the Handyman's domain - and just one mistake will end Tony's chase forever.
