As she struggles to become a homicide detective she faces open hostility and partners who want nothing to do with her. She and her latest partner, Ariel Dampier, were at loggerheads until a serial killer case dropped into their laps. A naked body of a teen runaway painted with her own blood spurs an investigation by the two. Clues are few and they must sadly wait for a second body to inch closer to the killer. Ali, a runaway with the ability to heal emotionally scarred victims, is drawn to Philly. She meets Thea, who could be her twin-sister, but knows she will also encounter the "Other" who she soon learns is the serial killer; one she believes she can heal.
