A child killer is at-large in North Carolina and Deputy U.S. Marshal Cady Maddix is tasked not only with the safety of his one escaped victim, but also with tracking down the accused murderer once and for all. After five years in a protection program, the young lone survivor of a brutal attack in a rural woods that left another child dead, believes he’s seen the man who’s responsible for the crime. The threat can’t be taken lightly, but how is it possible that the re-located family has been found after so many years? The case quickly becomes complicated as Cady begins to uncover the family’s and the fugitive’s secrets, leading her to wonder who is really guilty. As Cady grows closer to the truth, someone is determined to stop her at all costs and the consequences of putting the past to rest could prove deadly.
