A cunning psychopath has found a serial killer's paradise in an isolated patch of Oregon ... a religious commune, a cult. His youthful victims are never even missed ... until a lawyer comes looking for one of them.
And Rob Swift comes home.
Once this hamlet's brightest star, Swift is a cop now--disillusioned anxious, and insecure--on the brink of losing his job. A dismembered corpse is discovered. Not a trace of evidence. No apparent motive. Small town politics and vested interests conspire to keep murder under wraps--to shield the cult from outside exposure.
But the killings continue ...
and Swift is named a suspect.
Has he been set up? ... Again?
