Flaunting the police, the killer roams the forests in search of his next victim, looking for that 'special someone.' This year, that someone is Jesse Clarke.
Stalked by a ferocious murderer and set against an entire town, Jesse's life becomes a torturous hell that only grows worse when she falls for the one boy who can't possibly love her without killing her.
