The killer discovers that he’s being hunted, and decides to do whatever it takes to stay hidden.

Lincoln Pierce always wanted to be a private detective, but his life didn’t end up the way he expected. His daughter’s debilitating disease forced him to make some questionable decisions, and he’s been paying for them ever since. He’s determined to make the most of a bad situation, and has started looking into a case that could change his entire career, if he doesn’t get killed in the process.
