Police Chief Mario Balzic's sixth case: There's a new mayor in Rocksburg, PA, one of those simplifying, self-righteous amateurs bent on law and order who can't leave anything alone. His calls never stop, even trapping Balzic in his refuge at Muscotti's Bar. And this case is ugly, including a double robbery, a professional hit, drugs, and racial tensions. As usual, it is a case populated by unforgettable characters, the most unforgettable of whom is Balzic, the tough-talking, golden-hearted police chief of a Pennsylvania mining town where the coal has run out.
