John Prudhomme kisses his wife and leaves for work entering the cold, grey, Chicago morning. Outside the Belcour estate Chicago police cars swarm, a typically chaotic crime scene. Detective Andrew Hollinsworth, Prudhomme’s partner, is talking to Detectives Rousch and Scholfield. A grisly murder has taken place. The victim lies in a pool of blood, his arm amputated at the shoulder. A message, written in blood on the window bodes “He’s coming…”. At the autopsy, it is revealed that Roman numerals have been carved into the body of Belcour. The imprint of a key has been embedded into the victims neck. Rifling through the victims belongings, Prudhomme matches the mark to a key that fits a locker at Union Station.
