Detective John Rawlings has been a cop in New York City for 28 years. He's been around a bit (Great Hotel Robbery and Great Diamond Robbery), but is nonetheless appalled by a recent trail of victims left by a handsome, smooth-talking rapist. While eluding a trap, the rapist takes a policewoman hostage. "Little John" and his partner track him from Manhattan to the Bronx to Brighton Beach, where he has holed up in an old hotel. A chief of detectives with one eye on the five o'clock news provides comic relief, and the courtroom scene at the end offers a surprise conclusion. Throughout, "Little John" waxes avuncular on assorted topicsin a voice that blends elements of Jack Webb and Travis McGee. Minehan also wrote Jeremy and A Sudden Silence. January 20
