Sam was only 7 when she witnessed the murder of her parents by a serial killer who was never cought. She is put into foster care and given a new name. 10 years later murders surround her which are identical to the ones she witnessed all them years ago.

His grasp held onto her hand tightly, not in the warm, soft way that she loved. This one sent a cold shiver down her spine.

Her hand rose to touch her cheek, he leaned in closer to her, their lips were almost touching.
