Detective Jim Hughes finds himself investigating a string of apparently unrelated crimes with a few small pieces of evidence. It also appears that the reason behind the crimes has no apparent motive and even his profile seems baffled at some of the information.
And then the villain makes it personal, finding interest in the competition and a philosophy free will and the constriction of laws that limit not a persons ability to harm another, but a persons inability to live for themselves.
His crimes range from arson, to murder. From theft to hostages. All to try and prove a point.
