Deranged Steven Murdock, The Angel Killer, hears a voice in his head that directs him to “birth angels.” Young and beautiful, these children are brutally murdered and revealed in a sickening display of innocence and human carnage.

Unraveling fast, Freddy’s millionaire life of the party best friend, George Casey, does everything within his power and finances to keep his friend from self-destruction.

Freddy wrestles with questions of life, death, and doing the right thing, while fighting the overwhelming desire to use his expert embalming skills to exact vicious revenge.
