Retired homicide detective Arn Anderson tracks a coldblooded killer
Two innocent victims, strangled to death on consecutive Saturday nights. Even as they see the pattern emerging, retired detective Arn Anderson and TV reporter Ana Maria Villarreal can't convince the Cheyenne police that the killer may strike again.
And then the third body is found.
Hunting a remorseless murderer leads Arn and Ana down a rabbit hole of ranchers, rustlers, and institutional psychiatrists. But the closer they come to catching the killer, the more they're met with suspicion. And when their investigation collides with a desperate act of violence, they wonder whether they're unwinding the killer's twisted thread of clues or tightening their own noose.
