His death triggers an investigation, which raises questions as to who he really was, and who she is. Kat is determined to find the answer to her true identity, but the answer finds her before she has a chance. Kat is thrown into the violent and chilling world from which her father had protected her all these years, and she must quickly learn to fight or die.
