First one, then another of the town firemen s wives has been murdered, and a third has barely escaped an attempt on her life. Incredible as it seems, a serial killer is stalking this sleepy little southern community. And Mark Branning s wife may be next on the list. Mark is determined to protect her. But keeping Allie alive won t be easy not with their marriage already dying a bitter death.
