When another woman, this one a famous actress, is found murdered in the same way, it becomes apparent they there is a serial killer on the loose, one who seems to be after famous women. Eve decides to use herself as bait and puts herself in the news as much as she can, assisted by a television reporter with whom she has developed a friendship of sorts. The scheme misfires, and an assistant at the TV station is mistakenly murdered instead of the TV reporter.

Just as Eve thinks she has arrested the murderer, the reporter is kidnapped and the chase is on – Eve wants to save her friend, and the murderer wants to kill them both.

This is No. 2 in a series.
