Ryan Hardy managed to capture serial killer Joe Carroll nine years ago, although he was stabbed in the heart and forced to retire. Now Carroll has escaped and the FBI wants Ryan to consult with their agents. However, Ryan soon discovers that Carroll isn't alone: he's created an army of serial killers, all willing to obey his every command.
Ryan: I'd like to speak to her.
Jennifer: About what?
Ryan: I'd like to know how she's doing.
Jennifer: Perhaps later when we're not trying to find a serial killer.
Ryan: You deserve more. I belong in your past. I work better in people's pasts, I always have.
Ryan: Where is she?
Carroll: You know, the human eye is connected by seven muscles. I removed each one individually. You know how hard that is to do?
Ryan: So what's my sequel about, Joe? Everyone outside is anxious to know.
Carroll: Umm. Well, it's going to be a collaboration. We're going to write this together, Ryan. You know, my first book was... clearly too avant garde. Lost in literati pretense. Now my new story... will play to a much wider audience. Even Poe whored himself out eventually.
Ryan: If this book ends with anything other than your death, you'd better plan on a rewrite.
