A journalist plays cat-and-mouse with the serial killer responsible for murdering her mother by following the diary pages he leaves at the scene of each crime. Laura Nelson is on the trail of the country's most notorious psychopath, but her motivation for tracking him down is deeply personal. It's been years since Laura's mother fell victim to this madman's blade, and her daughter won't rest easy until justice is served. This maniac isn't shy about touting his influences either, because he leaves pages from his diary at every one of his murder scenes. With extended passages about Ed Gein, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Richard Ramirez, the diary stands as a chilling testament to the killer's gruesome ambition. Now, for every step closer that Laura comes to catching this murderous butcher, he inches up quietly behind her awaiting the perfect moment to strike.
