A man's body is found. He has been systematically tortured to death. Every bone in his body has been shattered - even the joints of his fingers and toes reduced to powder. Ordinarily, this case would provoke public outrage and a swift, intense police response, for the dead man was a prominent Philadelphia physician...but Captain Bill Fogarty and his team have found Dr. John Winston Flint's collection of highly graphic, sadomasochistic, pornographic home videos. Flint himself was often the star performer, and it is very clear that not all of his partners were willing. Fogarty and his friend and colleague, medical examiner Josef Tanaka, discover that the good doctor was deeply involved in the drug trade, illegally selling massive quantities of steroid drugs to hard-core body builders. In a world where total physical prowess is the ultimate goal and strength truly equals power, performance-enhancing chemicals are more than worth their weight in gold. Nothing in Fogarty's experience has prepared him for this case, where each secret he uncovers seems to lead him farther from the truth, and where the darkest secret of all is written in the blood of two drug-enhanced, steroid supermen.
