Sixteen, innocent, and beautiful, April Perry is gang raped by five hoodlums. To shield her from publicity, her wealthy father sends her to Boston to complete her education. She returns to Tampa eight years later with a law degree and joins the District Attorney's staff. During her absence, the five rapists have been paroled and are back on the streets. The savage theft of April's innocence has left her psychologically damaged, ashamed of her body and maintaining a paranoid distrust of all men. Shortly after April's return, a killer using the name of Azrael, the Angel of Death, undertakes the systematic elimination of the rapists. During her absence, April's high school sweetheart Brad "Rock" Paxton has become a Detective Intern and is partnered with Lt. Luis Agosto, the acting head of Homicide. They are faced with the prospect that the girl that Rock loved as a youth-still loves-may be the killer, Azrael. When all of the rapists are dead except Josh Sampson--the leader of the gang--Azrael invites a select group to participate in his Josh's execution. Among those invited are Rock and his partner. They are helpless to deter the gruesome outcome as Azrael is unmasked.
