Jane Taylor is independent and happy raising her daughter, Britt any, as a single mother. With a fulfilling and lucrative job, she and Brittany have a good life together. But it's all cut short when Jane is attacked and murdered by an unknown, masked assailant. The same man also goes after fourteen year-old Brittany, who barely manages to escape his clutches. Five years later, she is still struggling to cope with the loss.
Now a sophomore in college, Brittany is getting ready for a celebratory spring break vacation when a mysterious phone call from an old neighbor halts her plans. It sounds as though someone in her hometown has information about her mother's murder, and Brittany can't help but go back to her hometown to see if she can discover the truth.
Word spreads fast that Brittany is back in town, and the killer soon hears of her return. He knows she is trying to solve her mother's murder, and he will stop at nothing to keep his identity secret-even if it means killing again.
