On a cross-country trip to California, two young women take an unscheduled detour into the Arizona badlands. Nothing has been heard from Jay and Nicole since.
It's only been three days, and the cops aren't worried, but Jameson Walker is. He hires Joe Hunter to find his daughter, Jay, and bring her home.
The desert is dangerous and unforgiving. So is the brutal Logan family, sadistic men who have snatched the friends, as they have other girls before.
They won't be freed without a fight to the death, but Joe's mind is set. He'll do anything to save the women: even if it means paying with his life, there'll be no going back.
