Before Daniel has a chance to work this through with his patient, he finds Kevin brutally murdered. Stunned, he and the police suspect that he, not Kevin, had been the intended target. Feeling responsible, Rinaldi is determined to help find the killer, who’s begun leaving death threats for the psychologist.
