Mark Nelson is a young police officer, newly assigned to the team of John Mackey - a highly-decorated and successful detective, and author of a bestselling true crime book based on his years of experience catching killers.

He knows only that his girlfriend is still being held captive in the woods he's escaped from. But the team know that by fleeing, the man has sealed his girlfriend's fate. If they can't piece together his experience by daybreak then she will die in his place. However, all is not what it seems ...
