The Mugger is the second book of the 87th Precinct series. It traces the whereabouts of a mugger who is quite different from the average mugger. This stealthy robber lies in wait for women, and actually maintains niceties while robbing them. The case becomes severe when he injures, and then causes the death of another one of his victims, who just so happens to be acquainted with the policeman in charge of his case. Fueled by an insane personal vendetta, Bert Kling will stop at nothing until he brings this mugger to justice.
