Local murder-squad detective, Wayne Tilson is assigned the daunting task of tracking the killer's moves and stopping him before the city of Nashville can lose another star to this fiendishly clever lunatic. Soon, the mayor of Nashville decides that it would behoove the city to call in an FBI specialist to solve these grisly murders. In the end, after a string of victims of varying degrees of fame are dispatched to the ether, only a little luck and the revelation of a teenage boy can stop, `The Music City Madman'.
