Synopses & Reviews
Hidden forces are willing to kill any and all who stand in the way of untold billions of dollars. To throw the authorities off track, they borrow the signature style of a brutal serial killer the Chessman who stalked the corridors of power in Washington, D.C., some years earlier. The ruse works brilliantly, except for one minor detail: the real Chessman is not pleased that someone has stolen his M.O. Enter ex-FBI agent Drew Cady, who finds himself being sucked back into a case that crippled him both physically and emotionally, the very case that almost took his life. By capturing the Chessman and his blood-soaked copycat, Cady has one last shot at redemption if he can survive, that is.
