Juniper College has a grisly history. In 1989, Professor Rodney Boone murdered eight of his students. The victims, A to H, were selected by surname and the serial killer’s signature was to leave the initial carved into the back of their neck.
The spree ended with Victim I, who managed to fight back, stabbing Boone and leaving him to burn in his house of death.
Fast forward eight years and rookie police officer, Rebecca Angell, is thrown headlong into assisting a Federal investigation after she finds a body floating in the sewer marked with the initial J.
