FBI Special Agent Severin Ash lives in a world haunted by people he's never even met -- the missing and the dead. Working out of Seattle's field office, Ash is assigned to coordinate a child abduction investigation in the small island community of Carver Isle, WA. The case at first seems to be open-and-shut, but when another child disappears on Halloween, Ash realizes it's far from over. He teams up with local woman Parker Kelly, who has her own ideas about what may be happening. Together, Ash and Parker must solve this puzzle of deceit, identity and manipulation, exhuming secrets and memories both would prefer to leave undisturbed.

Set against the chaotic backdrop of the days immediately following 9/11, D.C. Corso's stark thriller paints a vivid picture of life in a small Pacific Northwestern town as national tragedy overshadows its own losses.
