Stabbed and lying in a pool of blood next to her killer, Nikita never imagined an end like this. A talented VJ, popular talk show host and national darling, the cruelty of it cut through the pain she was feeling.
She scanned her failing memory for answers. Who was this young man lying next to her? Where did he come from? Why did he stab her?
