A critically acclaimed master of suspense, J. A. Jance, the New York Times bestselling author of Fire and Ice, transports readers into the beauty and mystery of the American Southwest . . . and into the very heart of terror.

The hunter is free to kill again—and hour by hour, he draws nearer . . .

The brilliant psychopath Andrew Carlisle spent only six years in prison for the brutal torture–murder of a young girl of the Tohono O'odham tribe. The testimony of Diana Ladd—a teacher on the reservation—put Carlisle behind bars, and now she can't ignore the dark, mystical signs that say a predator has returned to prowl the Arizona desert. Because no matter where Diana and her young son hide . . . he will find them.
