    When prostitutes turn up dead in Phoenix, not much attention is paid. But when a pattern of disturbing murders is discovered, the local police soon realize a serial killer is on a rampage and they are in way over their heads. Given the unique nature of the crimes, the FBI, called in, knows they will need their most brilliant mind to crack the case: Special Agent Riley Paige.
    
    Riley, recovering from her last case and trying to pick up the pieces of her life, is at first reluctant.

She learns that, even amongst these women, there are glimpses of hope, hope being robbed by a violent psychopath.

But what she discovers leads her to a twist that is too shocking for even her to imagine.
