|Plot Summary of Slow Motion Riot|
Steve Baum is a probation officer in New York City and his caseload is so excessive that he doesn't feel he can do justice to any of his clients. But he keeps trying, in the hope that he can change just a few people's lives for the better. Mainly though, he watches helplessly as his mostly lower-class clientele slowly but surely destroy their lives. Then one day he's assigned the case of Darryl King, a want-to-be drug lord with a penchant for violence and a taste for crack-cocaine. Steve hopes to help Darryl at the outset, but before long he just wants to survive his encounter with the teen-aged sociopath who seems to have no qualms against killing people just for the fun of it.
