But when the team is called in to give advice on an active case — a serial killer who exclusively hunts teenagers—things begin to unravel. Working against the clock, they must turn to one of the country’s most notorious incarcerated murderers for help…Simon. Despite Travis’s objections, Emma becomes the connection between Simon and the FBI team. But while Simon seems to be giving them the information, they need to save lives.
