Most homicide detective teams run on trust, loyalty, and
the shared desire to put killers behind bars. Frank
Bennett's partner, Eden Archer, thrives on darkness and
danger. She has a rare talent for catching killers - but
her idea of justice has little to do with courtrooms.
Now three girls are missing, and Eden is going
undercover to a remote farm where the troubled hide and
blood falls more often than rain. Frank's job is to keep
an eye on his partner while she's there - but is it for
Eden's protection, or to protect others from her?
Walking a tightrope between duty and desperation, Frank
confronts a threat from Eden's past. Suddenly, the
hunter is the hunted. And a killer's vicious desires are
about to be unleashed.
