In Southern California, a low-profile serial killer has enjoyed relative anonymity and killed without consequence in the Hollywood Hills and the Hollywood Lake area since the great fires. The predator prayed on transients and prostitutes working the hard streets of tinseltown, but his tactics have recently changed, and his victims now include high profile modeling talent. Once again, Jim O'Brian and John Swenson must unravel the mystery behind the killings before more innocent, young women are targeted and brutally torn to pieces.
Suzy Strom was your typical fourteen-year-old girl. She had hopes and aspirations, including becoming a model. Suzy's mother did not share in her enthusiasm, and her father, Los Angeles Homicide Detective Randy Strom, knew nothing of them whatsoever. When an unforeseen rendezvous with a random stranger results in their daughter's murder, Randy and Amy Strom do what any good parents would - they take matters into their own hands. Caught up in sensationalizing yet another young woman's murder, Hillary Sums and Terry Brady, a lesbian media power couple hungry for a headline, weave fiction into a story with little facts. And as the Stroms collide with the two reporters, Sheriff Jim O'Brian and FBI Special Agent John Swenson, aka The Iron Eagle, pursue truth and justice for the victims.
