The girls are warned with a simple postcard, each with a photo of the intended location of their death… and of themselves, post-mortem. Authorities continue to investigate the macabre, foreshadowed killings. When Wynn Rush receives a card foretelling her own death, she turns to Cole Mathison for help in finding the maniac behind the murders. Eva joins them in a search that leads to a cryptic message in a sinister old fairy tale. Someone is out to prove his worth. And magic cannot find him.
