Bounty on a killer.
It's 1935 in Detroit. The city is in the midst of a heat wave when a beautiful white woman is brutally raped and murdered, setting off a powder keg. The chief suspect is a recently paroled black man. Fearing for his life, he goes into hiding only to discover that the victim's father, a rich retired judge, has put a bounty on his head: one million dollars for his apprehension, dead. Standing between the fugitive and a lynching mob are detectives Michael Yellowstone, an Osage Indian, and his partner Lt. Jack Hill. Yellowstone is determined to find King and bring him in alive. What he doesn't know is that Hill has a totally different goal in mind. Writers Michael Vance and R.A. Jones offer up a tense, suspenseful thriller that explodes across the story wherein money hungry citizens are transformed into blood thirsty hunters in the biggest manhunt of them all.
