As a fire rages in the Los Angeles hills, the police make a grisly discovery: the corpse of a recluse, clutching an album containing photographs of seven murdered women, taken just moments after they were killed. One murder per year for seven years, apparently unconnected. But now with the discovery of the "death album" there is a link. Only one suspect was ever charged in any of those cases - and Elvis Cole supplied the evidence which set him free. That suspect is the body now found in the fire - and the police are out for Cole . . .
