Persuaded by her roommate to try online dating, Lindy begins to suspect that one of her suitors is a deadly cyber stalker.

Teaming up with the cyber unit and some hacker friends, Lindy leads the charge to solve these murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.
