One Mississippi. Two Mississippi. Three... "Need a ride?" Fourteen years ago, FBI agent Blake Wilder's life turned upside down. Her parents were murdered, and her sister was taken. At the age of 22, Blake joined the FBI. Hoping one day she would find out the truth behind her tragic past. Unfortunately, the only lead she had; a man she had known since childhood was found dead. Out of leads to follow, Blake Wilder turned to doing what she does best - her job. It is then that she stumbles onto a case that promises to bring not just distractions but tragedies. With a sadistic and enigmatic killer on the loose and just getting started, Blake finds herself steps behind and struggles to catch up as the body count rises and college girls are slain. As Blake is matching wits with the killer, she stumbles across a mysterious figure from her childhood who could potentially reignite her parents' case once more. Everything is building to a head and enemies are gathering. Even if Blake survives her encounter with this new, dangerous predator, she might not survive the cost that digging into her own past will certainly bring. Plots, conspiracies, killers, and enemies abound. To get the answers she is so desperately seeking, Blake must be prepared to pay the ultimate price. Knowledge is power. But for some of us too much knowledge is deadly.
