They say no good deed goes unpunished. A charitable invitation to a homeless, veteran to join him for lunch draws Jesuit priest Jack Bennis into an unexpected search for a missing girl and a dangerous serial killer with a unique method of disposing of the bodies of his victims.
A serial killer is wandering the normally quiet streets of Staten Island. He kidnaps women and leaves their severed bodies floating in water. When Father Bennis invites a homeless Vietnam veteran to lunch, little does he suspect he is about to become involved in the search for the killer whom the press has labeled as “The Staten Island Butcher.”
The killer’s latest victim is a former student of Fr. Bennis. Will Bennis and his brother, retired NYC homicide detective, Tom Cavanaugh, locate the girl and the killer before it’s too late? As the clues mount up, ctould the police be right in assuming “The Staten Island Butcher” is actually the homeless vet Father Bennis has befriended?
