Cole is desperate to find answers but, with no clues to go by, the killer could be anyone.

Meanwhile, the killer smiles as he silently waits in the cover of timber, his rifle already aimed at Cole's heart...

He will need nerves of steel if he is to succeed when he is so heavily outnumbered. Can he cheat the odds and win?
