In Atlanta, Georgia, a vicious serial killer is at loose, luring victims with ease, killing them with a combination of precision and twisted brutality.
Keye Street is not happy. Formally a rising FBI star, with two university degrees and a brilliant track record in criminal profiling, she's now working for herself as a bail recovery agent.
It's not exciting work, but it keeps her agency afloat.
So when her friend and mentor, Lieutenant Aaron Rauser, wants her on his case, Keye is reluctant to help him out.
That way, obsession lies, and she knows her demons. But when he shows her a letter he's received from the killer, Keye feels a familiar excitement.
They're being played with, the snare is set, and Keye just can't resist picking up the bait...
