He stalks her, photographing her from every angle and fantasizing about the day when shell be his. Once he kidnaps her, he expects her to return his feelings, but the opposite is true and she shuns him, making her physical revulsion obvious; he begins to turn violent. Months pass, and as Vanessa continues to resist his advances, he vacillates between loving her and hating her enough to kill her. The police come up empty handed, so Ryan turns to PI, C.J. Malone, but when she disappears, and several key investigators on his wifes case are murdered, he knows hes in this fight alone. So is Vanessa.
