Madeline Keye’s gift – to touch someone or something and see flashes of the past – has helped her track missing people. It has also set her apart from her family and most of the people in her hometown.
So Madeline, already alone, turns to the wilderness for sanctuary. In the backcountry of Glacier National Park, she was always found peace and solace, away from all human contact. Until the day she is caught in a flash flood and almost dies. But she is rescued by a handsome stranger, and should feel safe once again.
Yet she doesn’t. She can’t shake the feeling of being watched, of being hunted. Something is out there in the shadows. Something hungry. Something…not human.
And it wants Madeline.
