    When a body is found - dissolved in acid, a ring of finger bones cemented to the skull - Drake is floored. For more than a year, he's been telling the NYPD that the man he had killed, the man who had taken his partner's life, wasn't the real Skeleton King. Nobody believed him. Even now, with a new skeleton as proof, Drake is met with resistance. A copycat killer, they say. But Drake knows this is the work of the original Skeleton King, and he is driven to seek revenge for his dead partner. Only, like before, he has no suspects.
