       Additional Information  
      It is the first day of the new year and Detectives Meyer and Carella of the 87th Precinct find themselves faced with the most heinous of crimes. A wealthy young couple returns to their apartment at 2:30 A.M. to discover that the babysitter - and their baby - have been savagely murdered. Even these veteran cops are shocked and puzzled by the brutal crime; but then other matters compete for their attention. The city erupts with gang warfare, the kind that threatens its very foundation; a burned-out colleague swears off sex and undercover work (not necessarily in that order); and the drug business heats up. The 87th Precinct finds itself tense and taxed - and ultimately, of course, richly rewarded.
