This win catapulted her to the top of the list for becoming a partner in her law firm. Life was good and getting better...right up to the day she died. Unfortunately for Amy, she became the first victim of a deranged killer, and is found strangled to death and her mouth sewn shut. Detective Tom Brikler with the Atlanta Homicide Unit races to find and stop the killer before another citizen is hideously murdered and disfigured.
