In the year 1900, Indiana author Albert Larson published his newest murder mystery novel: The Copycat Killer. Within the pages, a fictional author is murdered by an unknown person who uses the book’s name as their own and employs the story’s seven threats to kill innocent people in town.
Soon after, real-life drama occurs when the book’s author, Albert Larson, is murdered, using the exact seven threats outlined in the story. Days later, a letter arrived in the mail addressed to the marshal stating the following: “Catch me if you can!” and signed The Copycat Killer. Gas City Marshal Justin Blake realized they had a true-to-life crazed killer on their hands. By following the book’s remaining threat plots, he and his deputies must somehow stay one step ahead and prevent The Copycat Killer from fulfilling the remaining storyline threats; or dozens of innocent lives will be lost.
