Charles W. Kranston, who requires that everyone—even his family members—call him CW, owns the largest auto dealership in the state. His control and influence over important people, once very strong, is now proving useless to him. He is forced to watch, helplessly, while his family members are murdered one at a time right in his own home. His fear grows each day as he worries who will be next to die. Knowing that he has to be the true intended target, he still has no idea who the killer is, or why the killer wants him dead.
