Soon she uncovers the shocking truth: the killer, a professional photographer, is engaging in "copycat" murders across the country, while forcing a young student to document every horrific crime. The woman, he calls her "Boswell", is his stenographer of cruelty. And if she drops her pen, she'll end up being his next "subject."
