All that stands between Lester Ray Barnes and the state of
Florida's death chamber is a judge's signature. He is
sentenced to die for the rape and murder of a young woman,
his conviction hinging on two pieces of evidence: DNA
testing and an eyewitness who placed him at the scene. But
when the story breaks that the DNA testimony at trial had
been fabricated and that the eyewitness was coerced by a
cop, all hell breaks loose. In the absence of credible
evidence to sustain the conviction, the court is forced to
set Lester Ray free. It's the sort of circus the media
adoreâ€”until it turns into the kind of Grimm's fairy tale
the media love even more.
Intrigued by the story of a young man railroaded by
justice, true-crime writer Regan Landry is drawn into
Lester Ray's camp like a moth to a flame. For Regan Landry,
writing is a way to stay connected to her late literary-
legend father, and her knack for detective work makes her
a natural when it comes to uncovering new leads in even
the murkiest mysteries.
Eager for the spotlight, Lester Ray willingly agrees to
work with Regan on a tell-all about his experience as an
innocent man on death row. But less than a week after
leaving prison, he vanishes from the Sunshine State. Soon
after, darkness descends on the outer banks of North
Carolina as a string of women are raped and murdered in a
frenzied spree. Fearing the worst, Regan and FBI Special
Agent Mitch Peyton sweep in to confront the unspeakable:
the horrifying possibility that they have helped to free a
cunning monster with an insatiable appetite for deathâ€”and
a ruthless determination never to be caged again.
