Birds of Prey is the fictional story of a torious serial killer, thought to have been caught by the FBI and executed in West Virginia only to resurface ten years later in Southern California. The discovery by CHP Lieutenant Philip DiMarco of freshly dug graves in the Mojave Desert that bear the murderer's signature puts DiMarco in the middle of a nationwide manhunt by a task force of multiple law enforcement agencies for a militarily trained sociopath. The ensuing trail of murder leads to an intense cat-and-mouse game between the forces of good and evil, which becomes entangled in the politics of Washington, DC. As the task force gets closer to the killer only to be outmaneuvered and the death toll mounts, pressure intensifies from the highest levels of the federal government for his capture or termination. Frustrated with the lack of successful operations, Lieutenant DiMarco realizes the only avenue to success is to behave and think like the killer, which reveals the fine line that separates the hunter from his prey during the pursuit.
