    Who among us doesn't dream of a new life, a fresh start? But what happens when dreaming turns to scheming? The Whistler walks by night, stalking those who no longer walk the straight and narrow - the men and women, their backs against the wall, who step into the shadows and take matters (and the lives of those who stand in their way) into their own hands. What follows from one ill-timed impulse is the suspenseful subject of the 20 digitally restored and remastered episodes in this collection.
