Main Character: Walter Buczyno, the angry, grief-stricken homeowner; Detective Kevin Riehle and Detective Ray Capparelli who believe Walter is a serial killer and are trying to catch him.
Is a man a serial killer if he only kills the burglars who break into his home? And what if one of them is the man who had murdered the homeowner's wife and was now returning to kill him? Walter Buczyno is an angry man. Devastated by Dottie's murder years earlier, he feels a sense of justice when Franklin Edward Harris returns and Walter kills him. But while he is away, the bodies of Harris and the other burglars are discovered in his crawlspace, and Walter is on the run, a Wanted Man hunted by the very authorities that had let him down before.
