There was terror in her eyes. He smiled… He could be anyone. He looks like everyone. He looks like… us.
Eyes scanning, searching, the predator stalks his next victim.
Within hours a backwater south Georgia county will be rocked by two seemingly unrelated murders that signal the arrival of a serial killer in the rural Southland. Hunting the killer and preventing the next brutal murder falls to a plainspoken country deputy and two agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).
˃˃˃ It is a race against time to save the next victim and the chase leads north from the swamps along the Florida line to the foothills of the Appalachians.
GBI agents Bob Shaklee and Sharon Price know that Deputy George Mackey is a natural hunter and if anyone can find the sadistic killer, Mackey can. But Mackey, haunted by his own demons can only wonder if he will be late again. It is his greatest fear.
