Barbara Naklicki holds off a full two days before reporting the disappearance of her husband, Ed. The first clue is a dire one: Ed's work van has been found in a forest preserve on the city's edge. Next, Detective Bob Berent gets a strange phone call from a hotel on Michigan Avenue, Chicago's main shopping drag. The hotel reports a guest took a room three nights ago--and vanished.
Detective Pam Childs responds to the disappearance of Maria reported by Hector, the missing woman's boyfriend and the father of her infant child. Hector explains he received a phone call from Maria in which she threatened to kill herself. Next, Detectives respond to Tarvarus Wright's disappearance. They learn that he has fallen under the sway of a neighbor named Bruce, a member of a street gang.
Jeff Coleman and Bill Joyner tackle the curious case of Maurice "JacJac" Blandin. Before it's over, the investigation will immerse the detectives in a unique subculture of Chicago's black gay males; a world in which hundreds of young men organize themselves into "families" with surnames like "Corleone" and "Roman."
Missing persons detectives Pam Childs and John Smith catch the case of Nellie Litvinova, who disappeared a few hours after her daughter brought her home from a doctor's appointment.
