BASED ON THE TRUE STORY. New Orleans 1919: for nearly a decade a ruthless killer has prowled the streets of this city, breaking into homes and hacking people to death with an ax. His victims have included men, women and even a child. He leaves few clues, and no one can stop him. The police seem baffled. Is he a vendetta agent or a blood thristy maniac? Echoing Jack the Ripper from three decades earlier, the killer writes a letter to a local newspaper and refers to himself as a demon from hottest hell. But Detective Colin Fitzgerald, a wounded Army veteran who recently returned from the Great War, is prepared to do whatever it takes to catch the Axman. What Fitzgerald is not prepared for are the shocking secrets his investigation will uncover,secrets that stretch to the top levels of the Police Department and City Hall, and reach back decades to the assassination of a legendary police chief and even to the murder of Fitzgerald's own father.
