It has been two years since the town of Hollow Green, and its most seasoned detective Edgar Vincent has fallen on tough times, two years since a string of brutal murders left them shaken to their core, two years of peace and prosperity and quiet that finally brought a town once under siege back to a state of relative calm. But tonight, on All Hallows’ Eve—everything will once again be thrown into turmoil.
After discovering the mutilated and strung-up body of young boy, a local football star, Edgar Vincent and a new team of Hollow Green Police Department members set about learning the identity and motive of the killer—or killers—while trying to make sure to keep a lid on the situation from a town that is prone to upheaval. It is a baffling case laced with Halloween-inspired riddles and gruesome murders to match, but Edgar Vincent, a more than adept and keen enforcer of the law, will make sure he scours the ends of Hollow Green to bring those responsible to justice.
The only problem is that his own fingerprints have been found riddled throughout the crime scene.
After being relieved of his shield and his gun and placed under official investigation, Edgar Vincent finds himself going rogue to track down the killer as more bodies drop and all signs point to him as being the culprit. As the hourglass depletes and the jack-o-lanterns burn bright, it’s an all-out thrill ride as Edgar Vincent races against the clock to track down the murderer and finally clear his name, uncovering a deep-rooted conspiracy and sinister motives to match in a hair-raising tale where Hollow Green’s most well-reputed detective discovers the reasons that lead to him being BETRAYED.
