Two men claim to have escaped the murderous clutches of a serial killer. But each says he's the victim and the other man is the murderer. It'll take everything small-town police sergeant Chandler Jenkins has to discover the truth - before anyone else dies.

55 Summary

55: The twisty, unforgettable serial killer thriller of the year in 2019 by Mr. James Delargy


On a scorching day in Western Australia, a man named Gabriel stumbles into the remote police station in Wilbrook. He is badly injured, covered in dust and dried blood. He has fought his way through the surrounding wilderness to escape a man named Heath.

Heath drugged Gabriel, took him to a cabin in the mountains and tied him up. He told him that he would be his 55th victim. Heath is dangerous. He is a serial killer.

Just as Police Sergeant Jenkins launches a manhunt to find him, Heath walks into the station with a story to tell: he was drugged by a man named Gabriel, chained up and told he would be his 55th victim. Gabriel is dangerous. He is a serial killer.

The two victims are also the two suspects. Which one is telling the truth?
