500    Lyrics from "Family Snapshot" written by Peter Gabriel ; 
       published by Real World Music Ltd. -- t. p. verso 
520    The strangled body of a 9-year-old girl is discovered 
       behind a hedgerow bordering her school playground in York,
       Pennsylvania. The local authorities' only clue lies in a 
       scrap of paper left in her front pocket, with a short 
       phrase printed on it in an unfamiliar language. Jackson 
       Byrne, an FBI agent who specializes in investigating 
       crimes against children, has just completed a book tour 
       promoting his best-seller about solving his most recent 
       high-profile case-the abduction and murder of a 
       celebrity's young daughter. Unexpectedly, Jack receives an
       invitation from an old family friend and powerful 
       political insider urging him to run for the U.S. Senate. 
       At the same time, his FBI division learns of the murder of
       another child with a similar mysterious message, launching
       them into a search for a serial killer given the moniker 
       The Playground Predator. As Jack becomes torn between his 
       excitement about a new career and others' expectations of 
       a celebrated investigator, he must also continue to deal 
       with demons from his past. While Jack's devoted wife, a 
       sycophantic young FBI colleague, and an ambitious and 
       attractive female reporter all try to influence his path, 
       none of them pulls the strings as effectively as the 
       enigmatic Randall, the psychologically disturbed but 
       brilliant Playground Predator himself, who orchestrates 
       his own master plan, eventually dragging Jack into an 
       inevitable showdown.
