But it is Eric himself who finds the most damning evidence of all in his father's empty house; a bag of heroin, a needle, and, lying in the bathtub, a redheaded young lady, very beautiful and very dead. Determined to prove the police wrong, Eric begins to hunt his father's murderer only to realize that it is he who is the hunted and that the bloody web that crushed his father is about to fall on him--in a frightening "like father, like son" tradition.« less
