Deep within the Manistee National forest, in the weeks leading up to Halloween, tattooed villagers in Walkerville Michigan fall victim to someone who is extracting their tattoos before murdering them and leaving their bodies… or body parts, to be found later. Imagine awaking to the strings of a beautiful classical piece only to quickly realize that you are tightly tied down, naked, on a cold metal gurney, as a giant mad man dressed as a surgeon begins extracting one of the tattoos from your body with his sharp, steel scalpel. Thus is the fate of the unfortunate victims in the small, secluded Michigan village. Walkervilles’ Sheriff Kerry calls on Captain Parker and the Grand Rapids homicide department to help him and his three deputies on these strange and macabre cases. With each murder, though, the trusting villagers become more and more suspicious and accusatory towards one another. Everyone begins to point fingers and throw fists as Sheriff Kerry and Captain Parker try to work together on the strange cases in their unique small town and big city ways to try and find a serial killer hiding in the village.
