Storyline

In autumn 2003, 19-year-old Catherine Chandler witnessed her mother, Vanessa, shot and killed by two unknown hit-men who chased Catherine into the nearby woods to kill her too, where she was saved by a mysterious humanoid beast. In present day 2012, Catherine, now a successful New York police detective, is still plagued by memories of that mysterious beast as well as her mother's unsolved murder. "Cat" continues to believe there was a conspiracy behind her mother's killing and refuses to accept the police report being that it was a robbery gone wrong since the two men looked and acted like professional killers. Cat and her detective partner, Tess, are investigating the murder of blonde fashion editor Ashley Webster at a hotel. During the search, she finds fingerprints of deceased doctor Vincent Keller on the corpse. She learns that Keller was only helping Webster, whose death was the result of a previous poisoning. Ashley's husband Alex had been cheating on her; one of his mistresses ... Written by Larry B.
