Tom Reed is a crime reporter with The San Francisco Star, whose superb journalistic skills earned him a Pulitzer nomination. But years later Reed’s life is coming apart. His editor wants him fired. His wife has left him to wrestle with his demons. Alone, Reed is tormented by the fear he may have caused the suicide of an innocent man suspected of murdering a two-year-old girl. Reed’s friend on the case is legendary San Francisco Homicide Inspector, Walt Sydowski, who has one of California’s highest clearance rates. He is also a lonely widower haunted by the fact he cannot solve the girl's murder. Both men grapple with the past while they race the clock to learn the truth behind new abductions tormenting the Bay Area, in this acclaimed thriller set in the late 1990s.
In the remote region of Montana’s Glacier National Park known as the Devil’s Grasp, 10-year-old Paige Baker of San Francisco disappears while on a camping with her mother and father. A multi-agency task force launches a massive search as Paige fights to survive in the wilderness. Time hammers against her and soon the nation is gripped by the life-and-death drama.

Their recent history and disturbing evidence links them to a horrible unearthed secret from the past.
The disappearance and murder of a lonely San Francisco insurance clerk puts Reed and Sydowski on separate tracks in their pursuit of a killer.
