It’s just another day for John Webster, a reporter for the Daily Globe, when disaster strikes from out of nowhere. A sniper kills a prominent figure at a news conference and all hell breaks loose. With very few clues, the police are stumped. They have never seen anything like it before. A perfect headshot from over a 1,000 meters away.
John is one of the few people around who has experience dealing with snipers. In Iraq and Afghanistan he saw a lot of good people die and he understands how terrifying a trained killer can be.
At first Detective Cherie Killian, John Webster’s girlfriend, wants to keep John far away from the investigation. But as the sniper keeps terrorizing people, she has no choice to entrust John and enlists his help.
However working together is difficult and soon it tears at the fabric of their relationship. John may have to choose between stopping a murderous psychopath and the chance to reset his life and settle down.
As they investigate, they go down the list of military-trained sharp shooters. But very soon Cherie Killian and John Webster exhaust all possibilities without anything to show for it. It seems the sniper can kill without consequence.
When the sniper slaughters an entire family, however, the full brunt of the police force goes against him but he seems to be able to disappear into the shadows at will. No security cameras can pick him up; no witnesses live to tell their story.
But little do they know that the killings are anything but random. In fact, they are deeply personal and the only person who can stop the killer is John Webster.
