When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the streets, using a deadly drug to do his dirty work. The police are skeptical. The mayor won t listen. One of the town's most prominent citizens, with a missing daughter of his own, is also Kat's chief suspect.
