Private Investigator Wayne Tempest thought he’d left the badge in his past, but a new twist in his case pulls him back to everything he ran away from. Gone with no trace but photographs left at the abduction site, a growing body of victims has never been seen again. Until now. After Wayne witnesses 11-year-old Aaron Garret and his father taken in the same way, the bodies of two past victims are discovered. Desperate and discouraged, Wayne reaches out to his former partner, the only cop he still trusts, Detective Julie Martel. Despite a tension-filled past, he knows together they can bring Aaron and the others home.
But for Aaron, home is a distant dream. Imprisoned in the lavish Prescott Estate, Aaron and his father join the “cast” of captives forced to act out the scripts of the spoiled and unbalanced Lincoln Prescott. With a bloodthirst for realistic production value, Lincoln regularly forces the cast to kill each other. On camera. There’s no choice but to play along and pray rescue comes before there’s nothing left but the bloody remains of the abducted stars.
