About this title

Synopsis:

Unlike New York City, downtown Philadelphia slept after three a.m. All was quiet around the area of 8th and Race Streets. The Chinatown stores and restaurants were closed for the night, but would soon be awakened to the early morning sounds of merchants selling their wares. On Delaware Avenue the dance clubs were shutting down, cutting the lights that had earlier bathed the street in a wash of throbbing, pulsating neon. The masses of weekend merrymakers would be going home, some alone and some with a new friend. Some who had too much to drink would not be coming home at all. Manhole covers and steam vents spewed noxious clouds of heat from below. Homeless people huddled around them in the cold night air, trying to keep the November chill off their broken bodies. Some drank. Some were high from the drug of their choice. Some slept at the risk of never waking up. A few blocks away, the only lights that could be seen were coming from the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, connecting Philadelphia to Camden, New Jersey. On the first floor of Police Headquarters, or the Roundhouse, as it was commonly called, Detective B. Angelo worked through the night. The Homicide unit, tucked away in the corner of the building in room 104, operated twenty-four-seven. Detective Angelo sat at her desk with a mountain of paperwork stacked high upon it. Anyone passing by may have thought her a very disorganized individual-far from it. Detective Angelo, also known as Bee, BA, or Bad Ass, for no one knew her first name, was the most organized and capable detective in the unit. Like a Germantown pit bull, once she sank her teeth into a case, she did not let it go.

From the Publisher:

PHILADELPHIA , PA- A known pedophile is found murdered and brutally mutilated in a seedy back alley in North Philadelphia. B. Angelo, Philadelphia's top Homicide detective is assigned the case and even though she has a personal dislike of the victim, she'd handle the case as she would any other. Angel of Death (To be released November 2003 through Just my Best Inc.) is a present day police drama by Rosanna Filippello.

Upon investigation, Detective Angelo discovers that it wasn't a random killing and that his killer knew the victim. Soon the body count starts adding up and the only common link is the fact that they were all ex-convicts, killed ritualistically with a unique weapon. She is forced to work with another detective, Dwayne Ronalds, who she believes is only interested in his own advancement and career.

Even though their personalities clash and they don't particularly like each other, the detectives work together to uncover the killer's identity. The killer, however, is determined to complete his mission, given to him by God, even if that means he has to go through Detective Angelo to do so. Will Angelo be able to find him before more men die or will he destroy her first?
