As he draws closer to the heart of the mystery, he comes across a young woman he is certain he recognizes, even though they have never met.
But as he goes in search of her identity, his life begins to fall apart. Somewhere, a perilous truth awaits him, coupled with a terrible realization: those who uncover that truth cannot be allowed to live...
