Kurt Mason of the Denver Police Department, to assist in the investigation of a crime that appears to be linked to a double homicide that took place the day before. What they discover shocks them: at the scene of the first murders, a tiny tape recording is found in the woman’s mouth which, when played, tells Bowers that the killer will see him in Chicago.
