With brains and bravado, an anonymous killer is stalking the San Fernando Valley's most despised criminals: child molesters. Outraged by the failure of the criminal justice system to make them pay for their heinous crimes, someone has taken the law into lethal hands -- and now it's payback time. With wicked humor and deadly aim, the unidentified killer sets out to right the wrongs inflicted on young and innocent victims.
Soon everyone is a suspect, particularly the stunningly beautiful but embittered DA Rebecca Fielding, whose office is trying to pin the crimes on her. As the investigation gets underway, a conflicted romance heats up between Rebecca and Jack Larson, the lead detective on the case. Unsure what to believe, Larson is forced to put his job and his life on the line to discover the disturbing truth.
