Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0557892341, Paperback)

When Stanley Shaw witnesses a murder, his life isn't the only one turned upside down as a result. The effect it has on him ripples out across the city, turning chance encounters into life or death decisions. It puts Martin Radbourne's reputation as one of the city's brightest young entrepreneurs at stake. It puts the life of Derek Namek's sister on the line. It stretches Tim Greenley's skills as a criminal profiler to their limits. And in the shadows of the city stalks a serial killer. He has chalk outlines that need to be filled. Come rain, come shine, come heavy snow. Come night, come day. By hook, by crook, by pistol, by knife, by bruised fist. Some call him the 'Man in the Hat' because of his black fedora. Some call him the 'Magpie Killer' because he takes a souvenir from each victim. He picks his targets based on the colour of their skin, which is bad news for the black community, but it's also bad news for anyone who doesn't think that black people deserve to die.
