    Beside each body, the killer leaves a simple charm bearing a woman's name. The victims are strangers to each other, but they have been chosen with the utmost care.

She knows she holds the key to catching an obsessed psychopath - if he doesn't get to her first...WITH DAYLIGHT
    The deeper Kendall and Jacob dig into the victims' backgrounds, the more terrifying the discoveries. From the shadows of the past, a legacy of evil has resurfaced.
