The Grinding Wheel

Federal prosecutor Jeff Trask is assigned to prosecute WaShaun “Gloomy” Stewart, a street gang leader who has killed five rival gang members by his eighteenth birthday. At the same time, another serial killer—known to the investigators as, “The Butcher”—has begun kidnapping local women, killing them, and leaving their body parts in and around Kansas City. Working with the Kansas City Police Department’s Career Criminal Unit, a task force made up of both local police officers and federal agents, Trask is surprised as Stewart escapes from custody and the two investigations suddenly merge. When one of the task force’s female detectives is captured and taken by The Butcher, Trask and the CCU investigators must race against time to save her life and end The Butcher’s reign of terror.

'Marc Rainer has once again crafted an exquisite mystery that operates on many different levels ... Rainer's ability to slowly build an evolving story filled with surprising twists and the emotional tension of a torturous murderer creates a fast-paced story that creates a number of threads that come together nicely in the end. Highly recommended. '— Diane Donovan, Donovan's Literary Services
