Web of Crime
by Michael Elia
The cops in Timlook Police Department face new problems as they battle against criminal developers, drug lords, corrupt cops, American Nazis, and vigilantes. And again, Detectives Dave Bradley, James Mitchell and Nicole Lamenski fight for justice from the rough neighborhood of Timlook to the rural farmlands of Pennsylvania State and then to the swampy Everglades of Florida. Dave and Jim have to protect Daves Quaker family from ruthless developer Jake Knox, and later assist Nicole in her vendetta against Nazi leader Martin Kolchak after she witnesses two brutal murders. John Reynolds experiences a tortured conscience after accidentally shooting a young boy, and Melissa Morgan searches for ex-boyfriend Dale Manuchi before both cops are on the run from corrupt police. Dave again faces his own conflict between his Quaker pacifism and his reluctant need to fight fire with fire, and the action reaches a climax in Floridas Everglades as cops, drug dealers and vigilantes fight a ruthless war of attrition.
