A tragedy occurs at a small concert venue on the Monterey Peninsula. Cries of "Fire" are raised and panicked people run for the doors, only to find them blocked. A half dozen people are killed and others are seriously injured. But there was no fire - it was the panic and stampede that killed. Kathryn discovers that the stampede was caused intentionally and that the perpetrator - obsessed with turning people's own fears and greed into weapons - has more attacks planned.
