A super-charged killer is on the prowl, and she’s next on the kill list. Gorgeous outcast Billy Combs is the only one willing to help her, but his troubled past may be darker than he’s let on. Can she tame the mysterious powers surging within her and identify the killer before it’s her turn to die?
