Meg Pearce is haunted by a death that may never be explained, … and so she can never truly be
healed. During the summer before she started college, she and her boyfriend went on a camping
trip that ended with one of their friends disappearing. In one fell swoop of destruction, she lost
not only a friend but her own innocence, her future, her best friend and lover, her everything.
Seventeen years later, Meg’s career as an anthropologist drives her to seek understanding
about why things happen and the answers for human behavior. Those questions that torment her
have her returning to the same campsite of the tragedy that defined her life. A part of her hopes
to solve the mystery that has plagued her for most of her adult years. Ultimately she longs to find
a way to deal with the loss. Instead of gaining closure though, she stumbles onto a gruesome
discovery that has her reeling back to the darkest time in her existence.
Detective Chad Ingram has spent the last seventeen years attempting to solve a stone-cold
mystery—one that also stole his life and his true love.
Death seems supernaturally determined to shake up their lives for good or evil—only this
time, Meg and Chad are both in the crossfire.
