Daniel Clay, a once-respected psychiatrist, has gone missing. His daughter insists that he killed himself after allegations surfaced surrounding the harm done to patients in his care. Now a killer obsessed with finding the truth about his own daughter's disappearance is seeking revenge -- and Charlie Parker finds himself trapped between those who want the truth about Clay to be revealed, and those who will go to any length -- no matter the cost -- to keep it hidden.
