According to the book description of BUSTed, “When
a young woman is found dead with both breasts slit, the case of “The Slicer" is handed to veteran detectives Lieutenant
Danilco Pavlick and his seasoned partner, Sergeant Fu Chu Lai. During their ongoing investigation, they uncover a tangled
web of perversion, murder and deceit. They discover that a local strip club is hiring flat chested women and sending them
to San Diego where they are shuffled into Mexico. There they receive breast augmentations using not silicone, but heroin.
Upon return to Cleveland, the drugs are replaced with silicone. While walking down the airport concourse, “Boner,”
the drug-sniffing K-9, begins wagging his tail, a sure sign that drugs are nearby. The investigation of the drug-smuggling
case is hampered by the indictment of Lieutenant Pavlick for the murder of a pedophilic priest. Who killed the priest? Lt.
Pavlick…Sgt. Chu Lai…Father Belmont…the kid…the kid’s mother…or the Deacon?”
