Tormented by the murder of her mother at the hands of a serial killer called Neptune, Reggie, now a successful architect, must confront the ghosts of her past and find Neptune before he kills again.
Thirteen, awkward, and without a father, in 1985 Reggie finds herself mixed up with her school's outcasts. That same summer a serial killer called Neptune begins kidnapping women. He leaves their severed hands on the police department steps and, five days later, displays their bodies around town. Just when Reggie needs her mother, Vera, the most, Vera's hand is found on the steps. But after five days, there's no body and Neptune disappears.
Now twenty-five years later, Reggie is a successful architect who left the horrific memories of that summer behind. But when she gets a call revealing that her mother has been found alive, Reggie must confront the ghosts of her past and find Neptune before he kills again.
