What happens when it turns out the monster is real?
Reed Shelton organized this survival weekend. Hired the best guide in the region. Meticulously trained, studied, and packed while enouraging his wife, Beck, to do the same. But little did they know that surviving the elements would become the least of their worries. During their first night camping, an unearthly wail pierces the quiet of the forest. Then someone-no, something-emerges from the dense woods and begins pursuing them. Everything that follows is a blur to Reed-except for the unforgettable image of a huge creature carrying his wife into the darkness. Dependant on the efforts of a small town and a band of friends, Reed knows they have little time to find Beck. Even more important, he realizes they aren't the only ones doing the hunting. Something much faster, more relentless-and definately not human-has begun to hunt them.
Nothing is as it first appears in this thriller where things that go bump in the night are only a heartbeat away.
