Conway was then a police officer in the city. Is there a connection between the vanished girl, Conway, and the modern killings? As Kate and Tristan turn private detectives, the new killer is closer than they suspect. When he unleashes the final part of his plan, Kate finds herself back in her worst nightmare—only this time Jake is caught up in it too…
