Dr. Versaeus

Dr. Versaeus bears the weight of deep-seated resentment. Growing up amidst his mother's habitual infidelity and enduring the abuse inflicted by one of her lovers during his childhood, he developed an indelible chip on his shoulder. Despite achieving success as a skilled surgeon, the wounds from his mother's betrayal remain irreparable.

The profound impact of the abuse and betrayal extends to his shattered relationship with Gloria Santos, his former fiancée. As their bond deteriorated, an encounter with a married woman served as the final catalyst, pushing Dr. Versaeus over the edge. Determined to rid the world of female adulterers, he distances himself from the grimier aspects of his mission, relying instead on the aid of a willing accomplice.

Years have passed, and Gloria now serves as a Detective within the Tanner County Police Department. Tasked with uncovering the identity of a serial killer who specifically targets married women, she embarks on a relentless pursuit. Unsettling clues begin to converge, pointing towards a shocking revelation: Dr. Versaeus may be the perpetrator she seeks. With time running out and his whereabouts uncertain, the threat looms large. In Tanner County, and beyond, no unfaithful spouse is safe from the relentless pursuit of Dr. Versaeus and his unlikely partner.
