In the early 90s, at a small town near the edge of New Jersey, a killer is on the loose.

William Wayward, a detective and one of the only few people who has a form of authority in Northhaven, finds the severed limbs of a murdered woman. The person who committed the crime is unknown and is running loose, and it's up to William to find the one responsible before more bodies pile up.

But unbeknownst to him, William will find that the murder is more than just that, and digs deeper into the darker dealings that gripped the whole town and it's residents.
