En un futuro cercano, la sociedad tiende a ceder gustosamente cuotas de libertad e intimidad a cambio de proteccion. Este es el caso de una comunidad en el oeste de Estados Unidos que se hace llamar el Estado Quincuagesimo Primero. En este contexto, el profesor de psicologia y rastreador de asesinos en serie Jeffrey Clayton se entera de que una oleada de asesinatos esta asolando el territorio del oeste, la unica zona segura en los Estados Unidos (en el resto del pais, todo el mundo lleva arsenales de armas encima). Esta noticia lo enfrenta con su oscuro pasado. Veinticinco años atras, el, su madre y su hermana Susan huyeron de su tiranico padre, sospechoso del atroz asesinato de una joven estudiante. Aunque nunca fue condenado, termino suicidandose; o eso es lo que parecia. Ahora, con un psicopata al acecho, Susan recibe una criptica y siniestra nota anonima que desvela un mensaje terrorifico: «Te encontre.» Nadie parece a salvo del intruso. ¿Es el padre de Clayton el responsable de las muertes y del acoso a Susan? Las autoridades y los agentes de State Security (una especie de SS al estilo americano) asi lo creen, y se presentan ante Jeffrey con la intencion de que este encuentre al responsable de las muertes, a su padre. / In the near future, society tends to relinquish willingly shares freedom and privacy in exchange for protection. This is true of a community in the western United States calling itself the Fifty-First State. In this context, a professor of psychology and crawler serial murderers Jeffrey Clayton learns that a wave of killings is plaguing the territory of the west, the only safe area in the United States (in the rest of the country, everyone carries weapons stockpiles over). This news is faced with its dark past. Twenty-five years ago, he, his mother and sister Susan fled his tyrannical father, a suspect in the heinous murder of a young student. Although he was never convicted, ended up committing suicide, or that's what it seemed. Now, with a psychopath to stalking, Susan receives a cryptic and sinister anonymous note that reveals a terrifying message: ""We found."" Nobody seems safe from intruders. Is the father of Clayton responsible for the killing and harassment of Susan? The authorities and agents of State Security (SS a kind of American-style) so believe, and are lodged with Jeffrey with the intention that he found the person responsible for the deaths, his father.

From the Back Cover:

Susan Clayton works in the hobby and enigmas section of a magazine. One day is surprised by an anonymous note that awaits in your home mailbox. Horrified, decodes the hidden message: "I have found you." The message is really disturbing, even more in the world in which America has become: unable to stem the escalating violence, everyone hoards weapons for protection. Only one community has overcome this world of insecurity and crime: in exchange for giving up certain rights and freedoms, the territory of the West offers a protected area that aspires to become the state number fifty-one of the Union. But maybe is not so easy to escape the horror. An agent of the Security Service of the new territory visit Susan's brother, a university expert professor specializing in serial murderers, to require his services. A wave of killings is plaguing the state fifty-one. The beginning of the string seems to go back many years ago, and that Clayton may have elements to combat it.
