Vermont in hopes of putting the nightmare behind her. The police assured her
the assailant was behind bars. They were dead wrong. The truth revealed itself
in a rash of grisly murders. Each victim bore a striking resemblance to
Kennedy. Each killed in the same fashion as her attack.
My name is Reed Chandler, and I’m an expert on tracking the behavior of the
deranged. It doesn’t take long for me to realize it all traces back to Kennedy.
The killings are carving a path across the country, leading straight to her.
I getting too close? Losing myself in the alluring charms of the school
teacher? I don’t care. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. Let the killer
come. The tables have turned, I know his plan.
I’m on the hunt.

With only a handful of people knowing how to access the satellites. Even so, we
can’t figure out every single murder case. There’s just not
enough time in the world. It’s important we keep this knowledge contained

issues of this type of technology getting into the wrong hands. “That’s not
what I’m saying, Kennedy,” I said, hoping to deflect her anger and not sounding
like I’m appeasing her. “I’m sorry this happened to you, but I’m here to help.
Even looking at the satellites doesn’t guarantee we’ll find the killer. It
takes a lot of calculated guesses and that’s where I come in. I go with my
frustrated breath and her eyes softened. “I’m sorry. I wish you knew how hard
this was for me.” I understood what she was going through as I’d seen it time

I could get into some serious trouble for helping her. Was it good to give in
