The Birdseye case is a sensation from the start. It begins with a mysterious foreigner, elusive and charismatic. Add a centerfold model and her jealous lover, both serving time for kidnapping and alleged murder. Toss in a police investigation bungled by bureaucratic wrangling. Top it off with a local media frenzy fueled by fan clubs and ghostlike “sightings”, and we have a mix ready to explode.
The spotlight is on Nolan Sharpless, a no-nonsense investigator facing his toughest assignment. How can he solve a murder when the victim is a walking myth?
