The 107th St.Murder
In mid-October of 1978, the body of a young blonde tumbles from a garbage truck parked at the edge of the landfill, Mt. Trashmore, on Chicago's southeast side. Newly paired partners Rachael Culpepper and Tony Breese of the Chicago Police Detective Unit are assigned the case. They navigate the twists, turns, and lies of 107th Street to find her murderer. This 70's era Chicago murder-mystery presents a realistic portrait of the south side communities of Beverly and Mt. Greenwood with their legendary class rivalries as Culpepper and Breese follow a trail that leads inexorably to the shocking culprit.
