The Victim Summary

When two local gangbangers are found dead, who really cares? This "who cares" case quickly turns into a high-profile hunt for a serial vigilante killer. The body count and pressure rise in Fort Worth, Texas, as local community leaders and media pundits stir up political discourse and racial tensions mount.

Police Detective Jake "Cowboy" Hunter has been out of the field for six months struggling to overcome the on-duty shooting death of his longtime partner. His boss has an easy case for him to "get back in the saddle" while breaking in a new detective. After all, it's just another case of bad guys ending up dead.

While he readjusts to being back on the streets, Hunter and his temporary partner, Billy Sanders, find themselves sloshing through the gang infested underbelly of Fort Worth as they chase a vigilante who has set himself up as a modern-day serial Bernard Goetz. In the process, he has set off a firestorm of racially tinged political pressure by choosing minority gangbangers as his targets.

Between the piling body count and the media frenzy building to what's sure to be an all-out war on the streets, Hunter and his team's investigation leads them to suspect even the "good guys". Tensions escalate until Hunter discovers the media hype can help him outsmart the killer.
