Lightning strikes with repeated terror as a diabolical hangman murderer leaves one pretty coed after another dangling from the city's lampposts.
Lightning rends the night sky with searing acts of violence as a serial rapist returns or the same victims again and again.
Lightning blazes through the 87th precinct as the dedicated men and women who wear the gold badge push themselves to the limits of danger...because they know that behind each strike of lightning lies the darkness of a criminal's twisted mind.
