However, the killer seems to grow bolder and horns worst fears are about to to be confirmed.Since some where in the dark , there is a night spider who is prepared to take a new victim, and it appears that the killer is no stranger. The whole story is now about race against time .Thomas has no choice but to snare this psychopath, and to beat him at his own the killer at his own game or simply die trying.
