Lewin's Albert Samson--a character--appears only as an assist since this case is handled by dourer though very genuine Roy Powder who works the swing shift of the Indianapolis city police. He's at the dead end of nineteen years of service and a non-working marriage and now is involved in a tricky (too tricky?) business with drugs, some miscreants at a special school, and seventeen dead women. It may leave you scratching or shaking your head but the story's not the thing--it's that special world Lewin, like Chandler, creates where life and death have the same chill factor.
