Four Novels of the 1980s: City Primeval / LaBrava / Glitz / Freaky Deaky
City Primeval: Killer Clement Mansell is back on the Detroit streets, thanks to some nifty courtroom moves by his lawyer, and he's feeling invincible enough to execute a crooked judge on a whim. Homicide detective Raymond Cruz is determined to see that Mansell doesn't slip through the legal system's loopholes a second time. But that means a good cop is going to have to play somewhat fast and loose with the rules.

LaBrava: Joe LaBrava is ensnared in a scheme involving a redneck former policeman, a Cuban hitman moonlighting as a go-go dancer, and a onetime movie queen who lives in a dangerous fantasy world.

Glitz: Teddy Magyk has a serious jones for the Miami cop who put him away, but he wants to hit Vincent Mora where it really hurts before killing him. So when a beautiful Puerto Rican hooker takes a swan dive from an Atlantic City high-rise, and Vincent naturally shows up to investigate the questionable death of his special friend, Teddy figures he's got his prey just where he wants him.

Freaky Deaky: A pair of former 1960s student activists, who learned how to blow things up as part of their political education, have teamed up after a prison stint and are out for a revenge against a former comrade who they suspect was an informant.
