Mr. Umbrio is released from prison, where he has lived since destroying, in a most horrifying way, the innocence of Catherine. His assignment is to kill the son of a powerful person, and to make Jimmy Gagnon's death appear to be the work of one of the family members of this victim. Despite Mr. Umbrio's affinity for knives, a Swat Team sniper, Bobby Dodge, is his weapon of choice!
With this opening scene, a trail of violence begins, because Jimmy is not the "real" target of the man behind Richard Umbrio. After Jimmy's death, it becomes apparent that anyone else having a relationship to Catherine Gagnon is to be included on his hit list, either to be killed or to be discredited. The motive behind the killings is purely one of greed. One person desires to complete his conquest, interrupted by a hunting party, and another is desperate to prevent any door opening to his dark secret, which deals with incest and genetic defects.
