Arthur Combs is that most vicious of predators. First he selects the victims: beautiful, rich, ambitious women. Then he surveys the targets: he enters their homes, their cars, their lives. Finally, he introduces himself to his prey - "My name is Arthur. I'm your biggest fan" - right before going in for the kill.
Katlyn Rome has just received the greatest boost of her career, the anchor slot on L.A.'s Six O'Clock News. But her success may prove to be her undoing. Under heavy ratings pressure from the network, Kate becomes the key reporter, following the trail of Starman - the nickname the press has given Arthur after his recent attacks on some of the hottest female names in the city. When Kate's coverage of Starman forces her into the spotlight, hers is the next pretty face to catch Arthur's prowling eye.
As the hunter begins to stalk his latest quarry, Kate is no longer on a quest for ratings but a terrified player in a game with only one rule - kill or be killed. A special police task force steps in, including veteran detective and department outsider Dan Jarrett, who has more insight to offer than the entire unit combined. Still, Kate knows she will never be safe until Starman is caught. Forced to set herself up as the ultimate human trophy, Kate's entire future hinges on the outcome of the most deadly pursuit yet.
