A Paranormal Thriller

Psychology professor Denton Reed has been pulled out of the classroom to find a killer. Bodies are turning up all over the quiet town of Bexhill. They are found dismembered and burned beyond recognition in a snow covered farmer's field, by the abandoned mill, and under the train bridge. The only clue linking the victims is the bizarre figure eight patterns left behind in their homes.

Denton must use his unique profiling techniques to uncover the murderer, who the police have dubbed Mr. 8. As he begins to unravel the mystery, a strange pattern begins to emerge. Before their deaths, each victim was seized by dark obsessions and inexplicable changes in behavior. Whatever strange forces are affecting the people of Bexhill, they may actually be more dangerous than any killer.

As a wave of insanity sweeps the town, Denton will put his life on the line to get to the source of the madness and risk all to protect the woman he loves.

But is it already too late?


[Rated PG-13 For scenes of violence and strong language]

Oh damn I did not expect the last part at all. It shows the killer is intelligent (duh) and highly manipulative

He's there as a favor to give his opinion on the psychology of the victims. The police force is too small to have their own experts.

Wait, im puzzled. I thought he's a teacher? But why is he examining a case? *Filipino reader*

I know I would be curious about what people said about me.  Do they say positive stuff or kinda rude
