"They say when you look in dark places you find dark things.
And trust me; I have been in some very dark places."
On the day of Jake Palmer's parent's funeral when he thought things couldn't get any worse, his getting snatched off the street by a CIA black ops unit proved things could get worse for the young shapeshifter. Much worse...
Ten years on and all the things he's been coerced into doing for the agency have taken their toll on his sanity.
So when he stops for a hitchhiker on a desert highway in Utah he can't figure out why he's going against all his instincts to remain a loner. That is until the guy gets into his pickup, and Jake discovers his passenger is a young wolf shapeshifter running away from his domineering father.
However, Jake and Billy's meeting is no coincidence. Ancient, powerful forces have united in order to stage-manage the encounter. But for Jake and Billy, the consequences of their initially stormy coming together, are going to be more far reaching than either of them could ever imagine.
As all too soon they are thrown headlong into a series of deadly encounters, and find themselves fighting for their very lives against some extremely dangerous adversaries and pursued by an obsessed father determined to get his son back.
