Detective Chief Inspector Prosper Snow was once an overweight, little boy who was stabbed by a bully, Gary Smith. His misfit friends (Paris Gray, Ty Westwood, Wolfe Weaver, and Jerel Jones) formed a secret club, the Kult, and vowed to beat up anyone who harmed a member. Together, they avenged Prosper's stabbing.
Now Prosper is thirty-six years old and is investigating the heinous murders committed by the Oracle. His friends in the Kult convince him to kill a notorious thug, Mack Taylor (a.k.a. the Hatchet Man), who raped Jerel's wife. With numerous misgivings, Prosper helps them commit the act and arrange the corpse so that it looks as though the Hatchet Man was another victim of the Oracle.
The Kult believes they have successfully framed the Oracle. Soon they are plunged into a nightmare when the Oracle begins viciously killing them. In a final act of vengeance, the Oracle abducts Prosper's handicapped wife, Natasha. Prosper races against time to identify the Oracle before he kills her. Meanwhile, Prosper must avoid his beautiful workaholic partner, Constable Jill Jones, who suspects him of being the Oracle.From official release/information:
Product Description: Acting out of misguided loyalty to his friends, police officer Prosper Snow helps them perform a copycat killing. But when the real killer comes after him, he must find the killer before everyone he cares about is killed.
