Baker & Taylor
When a woman commits suicide after being tortured for witnessing a hate crime, her husband, Curt Halstead, despairs of obtaining help from the police and other legal avenues and decides to enter his wife's attackers' world as part of a plot for vengeance.

McMillan Palgrave
Otto Penzler and the Mystery Writers of America Present A Time of Predators by Joe Gores, winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best First Novel

The gang was restless, just looking for idle fun. They roughed up a man they thought was a homosexual--but their game got out of hand and their victim was blinded.

It was Paula Halstead's bad luck to witness the attack and catch a glimpse of one of the boys. After they got through with her, she killed herself.

The police have no leads and can't find the culprits. Paula's husband hires a private investigator to do what the police haven't been able to-with no success.

Curt Halstead refuses to give up; he will have his vengeance on the men who raped and tortured his wife, even if it means entering into their world of sex, violence, and murder.

though written in '69, was better than many of today's 'thrillers'.

Dated, predictable.
