Serial killer Ronald Jeffreys was executed for three murders.
Three months after his death, the body of a boy is found, killed in the same style as Jeffreys' victims.
Is there a copycat killer on the loose? Or is this the real thing?
Sheriff Nick Morrelli isn't equipped to deal with the case, so calls in one of the FBI's best criminal profilers, Maggie O'Dell. Together they start to uncover the gruesome picture of a killer. The picture of someone who has already been executed for his crimes.
When another victim is found, the terrible truth begins to come clear. Was Jeffreys convicted of crimes he didn't commit? Or has a cold-blooded killer been given the chance to perfect his crime?
