The vicious attacks of a serial rapist-killer have gone largely unnoticed. But the accidental discovery of the body of his latest victim brings wide media attention.
When reporter Lisa Anders sees a man shot to death only a few feet from her, she becomes terrified. The man was killed by accident; she was the intended target because she can identify the killer, the same man who attacked her seven years ago.
With the help of Todd Hallster, an ex-cop, and LAPD's Lt. Parker, Lisa tracks down the killer and he's taken into custody. But the killer proves to be extremely rich and powerful. And in court, it all boils down to Lisa's word against his. In the end, it's up to a jury.
However the jury decides, Lisa knows she remains at risk. For if he goes free, he'll want to tie up loose ends. If convicted, he has ample funds to extract revenge.
