Delving deeper into the case, they begin the dangerous hunt for a most sinister killer who believes he is invisible, untraceable and untouchable with the power to inflict untold fear and pain on victims.
As other victims are found to have met the same terrible fate, and with more women at risk, Tony and Carol are drawn into a dark and twisted web of fear and revenge that will force them to question their own ideas of justice . . .
