When Kay is found dead in her home, Gibson convinces the local police to put her in charge of the investigation, certain the crime betrays the work of a serial killer. Having taken a few keepsakes from his victim, Spector grows enraged when he suspects that his flirtatious babysitter has snooped in his office.
Gibson’s relationship with detective James Olson comes under scrutiny in the wake of his assassination. Meanwhile, she holds a press conference alerting the city of Belfast that the three murders may be linked. On a visit to his in-laws’ house, Spector finds an empty shack and feverishly fantasizes about the victim he’s picked to take there.
As the sordid details and big names attached to Olson’s death come out, the investigation takes a tragic toll. Gibson, however, catches a break: the killer contacts one of his victim’s families. But will she be able to act before another woman falls prey to Spector’s madness?
The grisly aftermath of the latest attack reveals a foil to the killer’s plan. Frantic and infuriated, Spector flees the crime scene and hastily disposes of evidence, all while trying to keep his home life from falling apart. Gibson inches nearer to uncovering the perpetrator’s identity, but an unexpected turn brings them closer than ever.
