Federal Agent Alex Oâ€™Roark is on the trail of Herod, a vicious serial killer who monstrously mangles his victims, always leaving behind a calling card with Biblical references which Oâ€™Roark uses to try and track the killer’s next move. After nearly a year trying to track down the elusive killer, Oâ€™Roark finally accurately predicts Herod’s next attack aboard a city bus, where the Agent undercover as a civilian waits for the killer to show. When Herod does strike, Oâ€™Roark becomes the sole surviving victim of the brutal massacre. Strangely enough, Oâ€™Roark miraculously heals from his fatal wounds — claw-like lesions all over his body, as well as numerous fractures and broken bones — subsequently gaining seemingly superhuman abilities. It’s with these new abilities that the Agent finally has a fighting chance to take down the killer, but Oâ€™Roark slowly realizes that he has more to content with than just the damage Herod inflicts.
