Rice Moore is just beginning to think his troubles are behind him. He's taken a job as a caretaker for a remote forest preserve in Virginia, hoping that the solitude is a perfect hideaway from the Mexican drug cartels he betrayed back in Arizona. But when Rice finds the carcass of a bear killed on the grounds, he becomes obsessed with catching the poachers before more bears are harmed. Descending deep into the Appalachian wilderness, he finds the undertaking far more dangerous than he anticipated--he has hostile altercations with the locals, his employers, and even the law. His past is catching up to him in terrifying ways and he's running out of ideas for how to escape it. . . .
