Brooklyn, 1933. A serial killer leaves a bloody trail in his wake, each murder more gruesome than the last... At least that's what the papers have been saying.

When a rookie journalist gets too close to the investigation, things take a turn for the worst. Will the true perpetrator be brought to justice before it's too late?
