Detective John Bocello wants nothing more than to settle down to a quiet, uncomplicated life after his messy divorce years earlier. But the former New York City police officer, because of his big-city homicide experience, is summoned to investigate a series of gruesome murders in the small town of Darlington, where the victims’ bodies are mutilated post-mortem. In the midst of the investigation, John realizes that he has strong feelings for a beautiful young widow, the owner of a local diner, and he is anxious to wrap up his case and devote some time to taking their relationship to the next level. Then John stumbles upon horrifying evidence that reveals the killer’s identity and his dreams of new love may die before he can get a spark lit. Can he stop the psycho before the beautiful widow becomes the next victim?
