KILLER ON THE ROAD

A hitman on the run kills the wrong woman, and a troubled female Police Detective, the mother of a teenage girl, promises the intended victim that she will solve the murder of the woman’s only child. When the grief-stricken mother finds out it was her hated ex who put a hit on her, hell hath no fury as a woman threatened.
