Cold Case Killer Haunts Washington, DC Metro Area
Lars Neilsen, a professor-sleuth, and his highly skilled Alpha Team put their lives on the line to catch the cold case killer of twenty victims.
Taurus, nick-name for the killer, has a track record of murders from Buffalo, Albany, Philadelphia to the Washington, D.C. Metro area. His modus operandi is mostly strangulation---placing a plastic bag over the head of his victims.
D.C.'s heightened restlessness is reminiscent of the post 9/11, snipers, and anthrax scares. Everyone is walking on pins and needles, particularly in the Northern Virginia region. The entire nation watches.
Steven and Laura Thompson have the ideal marriage, and the birth of
Annie only strengthens their bond. Life is perfect, as if they have
forever, until everything changes in an instant with one man's careless
decision - to drive while intoxicated - and the resulting accident
leaves Laura a widow.
Now a single mother, Laura struggles to move on
with her life but two years later, an unimaginable tragedy strikes
again. While shoveling her elderly neighbor's snowy walk, a careening
car slides into her on an icy patch on the street, and leaves Laura with
no memory of either Steven or Annie!
Laura grapples to make sense of
the missing pieces of her past, living in the present with a daughter
she can't remember, a friend she doesn't know but must learn to trust,
and a future filled with uncertainties.
A beautiful memory box,
handcrafted by her elderly neighbor and given to her at Christmas, is
filled with precious mementos in the hopes she will one day remember.
As Laura instinctively fights for survival, her eventual surrender to a
God of love brings hope, healing and a new wholeness to her shattered
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the
greatest of these is love." ~~1 Corinthians 13:13 - NIV
