Overview

When reporter Paul Novak investigates a series of brutal murders, he didn't plan to pry into the legend of Ed Gein, the "butcher of Plainfield, Wisconsin". But when local lore leads him to the ramshackle home of a bizarre young man and his mother, Paul realizes he's stumbled across Ed Gein's best kept secret. And he's about to discover that a killer's instincts never die.
