It's been ten years since Johnny Merrimon's twin sister was the first girl to disappear in their rural North Carolina town, and Johnny's search for her exposed deadly secrets that rocked the community. Since then, Johnny has fought to maintain his privacy, but books have been written of his exploits; the fascination remains. Living alone on six thousand acres of once-sacred land, Johnny's only connection to normal life is his old friend, Jack. They're not boys anymore, but the bonds remains. What they shared. What they lost. But Jack sees danger in the wild places Johnny calls home. He senses darkness and hunger, an intractable intent. Johnny will discuss none of it, but there are the things he knows, the things he can do. A lesser friend might accept such abilities as a gift, but Jack has felt what moves in the swamp: the cold of it, the unspeakable fear.
