Wrightsburg, Virginia residents are in a panic as a serial killer has murdered at least four times. The victims seem random and the motive is unknown.
Chief of Police Todd Williams knows he and his force do not have the skills to deal with this new predator and wonders if an FBI agent will prove helpful. Meanwhile former Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have opened up a private investigative office in town; they are already working on the fifth slaying, that of international businessman Robert E. Lee Battle, but their “client” becomes the next victim. Struggling like the sheriff to understand the motives, King and Maxwell may be experience with deranged monsters, but not a mimic like this one. They struggle with FBI agents, who are also trying, their way, to stop this serial killer before others die too.
