Description
A rape victim is found dead at the bottom of an airshaft of an abandoned building in the Alphabet City section of the lower east side of Manhattan. She is the fourth young lady from the mid west, who has come to NewYork City seeking employment, and has met the same fate The pressure on the NYPD to end this string of horrendous crimes is growing. Ian MacDonald, a senior trial assistant district attorney in the homicide bureau of the New York County (Manhattan) District Attorney's Office and Emily Bird, the head of the sex crimes unit of the same office, head up a task force with the NYPD to investigate and apprehend the perpetrators. The rapers are a group of young men from wealth homes in Westchester. They have concluded that no one would ever suspect affluent young men from the wealthy suburbs of doing this. They have developed a means to locate "Hayseeds" who come off the buses at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and lead them to their downtown orgy pad. At the same time there is a brilliant young inmate awaiting trial at Rikers Island. He has dreamed up a scheme to bring the courts to a stand still. He has got to be stopped before he succeeds in causing the collapse of the City's criminal justice system. Ian MacDonald may have to go out to Rikers in order to prevent this inmate from succeding. The great work of one of his colleagues safes him from that unenviable trip.
About the author
A graduate of St Lawrence University and Columbia Law School, Rod went directly to the New York County (Manhattan) District Attorneys Office which was then led by the legendary Frank S Hogan. After passing through the various junior bureaus in that office, he was assigned to the Homicide Bureau where he remained until Hogan made him Chief of the Complaint Bureau where most of the rookies in the office where trained. He then served as Chief of the Criminal Courts Bureau. After Hogan died and Robert M Morgenthau was elected the District Attorney, he was made Chief of the Supreme Court Bureau from which position he helped reorganize the office and was designated Chief of the Trial Division by Morgrenthau. As such he was in charge of most of the trials conducted by that office and supervised more than half the Assistants. Rod left the DA's office to become Chief Assistant Special Prosecutor to Special Prosecutor John F Keenan. They were in charge of all investigations and prosecutions of corruption in the New York City Crimainal Justice System. He was appointed Special Prosecutor when Keenan was appointed a Federal district judge. Rod left public service to form a law firm with John S Siffert and Frank S Wohl. Though he is retired, The firm continues as Lankler Siffert & Wohl. He has served on the Committee on the Judiciary for the Mayor of the City of New York, The Chief Judge's Advisory Committee on Criminal law and Procedure for the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals of the State of New York,as a commissioner on the New York City Commission to investigate Alleged Police Corruption (the Mollen Commission). In 1994 he went to Washington D C as First Deputy Independent Counsel to Independent Counsel Robert B Fiske, Jr in charge of the Whitewater investigation. He is a member emeritus of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Rod considers his greatest achievement to be his marriage of sixty years to his wife Barbara, who helped write FIXER, and who helped him raise four sons. They have given him four wonderful daughters-in-law and ten grandchildren. Rod hastens to add that Ian MacDonald is not him and he is not Ian MacDonald
