A young girl disappears after escaping from a religious orphanage, and another is caught on grainy film being abducted as her family home burns down.

While investigating the missing girls, Karl Kane catches a glimpse of a demon from his past – could it be that Walter Arnold, the monster who raped and murdered his mother, is walking the streets again?

Kane is determined that this time he will face down his darkest fears and confront the evil killer.
