The bodies of three young children, abandoned on a bleak hillside, are discovered by Lieutenant O’Connor’s Afghan hound, and so begins another long and tough investigation for the Glendale Police Department.

Vic Varallo, O’Connor and team are also tasked with a serial rapist, the murder of a respectable accountant, and a baby kidnapped during an armed robbery gone wrong. With both their wives expecting a baby soon, it’s a wonder Varallo and O’Connor have any time for murder.
