Detective Sergeant Philip ‘Cato’ Kwong is light on sleep but high on happiness with his new wife Sharon Wang and their baby girl.

As New WAve journalist Norman Lip flirts online with the killer, it becomes apparent that these murders are personal  every death is bringing the killer one step closer to Cato.
