A brutal serial killer stalks the million-acre Ottawa National Forest in Michigan’s western Upper Peninsula, a man who can vanish into the vast woodlands without leaving a trace. The fragile local economy is paralyzed while authorities search for him.
Will the elusive fugitive be brought to ground before he kills again? Is the killer a man with human motivations as they are now understood, however warped as they might be, or is he something else, a throwback to past times, times not seen for hundreds of years? The contradictions confound his pursuers.
