Scarred by a tragic childhood accident, beautiful Creole zoologist Dr. Marie LaCour throws her energies into running her Crocodile Habitat in the bucolic community of Cane River, Louisiana. But the mutilated bodies piling up throw a wrench into her plans, as frightened residents naturally finger her large toothy reptiles as the culprit. With the help of heartthrob journalist Grant Metoyer, Marie bypasses the bungled investigation of Lt. Frank Sarpy and does a little snooping of her own. She soon finds that the ghosts of the past can stir restlessly, thrust matted hands through the loam, and come back to haunt... Soon Marie and Grant find themselves targeted by both Sheriff's deputies and a mysterious throwback, a drawing noose that they avoid only by becoming as close as lovers. At the explosive climax, Marie's life is again deeply altered, and she discovers that the harrowing experiences have strengthened her will to live and love again.
