After the gruesome murder of Ashby Harris, a beautiful and powerful real estate developer, special agent Kelli Mulder, a brand new graduate of the FBI profiler school in Quantico, Virginia, is assigned to the case. Kelli, along with her new love interest Jake Ryan, a local unorthodox detective, will pursue these sadistic killers from Manteo to Cedar Island. The pair comes within two days of catching the exclusive killer on remote Cedar Island, but the killer uses his great intellect and survival skills to evade his captures once again. This case will test Kelli's strength and determination as she senses that she is caught in a vortex of the supernatural that seems to surround the Outer Banks like a shroud of death. When Kelli is kidnapped by Jeremy Murphy, alias Hercules, and taken to Portsmouth Island, Jake Ryan will race against both man and nature to save his beloved. As Jake races to save Kelli from the hideous and demonic killer, a powerful hurricane is bearing down on the island putting all lives in danger. Will Jake be in time, or will the storm take them all?
