Miranda Moore is the sole survivor of a brutal serial killer who kidnaps, rapes, and hunts women in Montana. After being booted from the FBI training academy, Miranda has spent a decade rebuilding her life and now leads the local search and rescue team. But her sole focus is to find the Bozeman Butcher before he kills again.
When another college co-ed goes missing, everyone knows the Butcher is back. Sheriff Nick Thomas calls in his friend—and Miranda’s former lover—FBI Special Agent Quinn Peterson. Quinn is the one responsible for Miranda being ejected from the FBI, and she hasn’t forgiven him. But they have to work together to stop this killer … or another girl will end up dead.
