"He is the guardian. He will protect his saint, no matter what it takes."
Black and Miri just want some alone time. Instead, they get thrown into a high-profile murder case when one of Miri's patients shows up dead.
When the body is found, beheaded and tied to a pier, Los Angeles detectives descend on San Francisco, convinced it's the serial killer they've been hunting, known only by his media name of "the Templar".
When the Templar continues to cut a swath through San Francisco, his victims begin to show a new pattern, however - a pattern that appears to have Miri at its center.
