Nick Burkhardt, a promising Portland homicide detective, told nobody he's been seeing visions of people 'transforming' into monsters when he looks at them. While investigating the murder and disappearance of two girls, he realizes it's a Grimm family gift, which passes from his aunt Marie Kessler when she is dying from cancer. She also gives him a mysterious key. Nick becomes her attacker's next target, narrowly escaping. Nick discreetly uses his gift to track down a postman, who turns out to be a descendant of werewolf lineage, and who helps him find the violent monster. Written by

Why can't you just look at her ass like the rest of us?
