It was a quiet night of summer and a very neat suburban house. This time another happy and innocent family is shattered. They became the latest victims of a grisly series of multiple sacrificial killings which no one was able to understand. Nobody was ever in a position to stop them out. There was nobody alive to tell the details about this unimaginable brutality. The only witness, in this case, was the blood-stained walls.
All hopes were with Will Graham who was a Special Agent. He must peer deep inside the tortured soul of the killer to get the feeling of his rage and also to prevent his next possible attempt.
