In the winter of 1992, a family was attacked on their drive into Highlands, North Carolina. The parents were gunned down. The children were reported missing. The case went cold. Until now… Rachel Harroway, a tragic detective with the ability to see the dead, discovers a rag-dressed cadaver bearing a serial killer’s mark. With the help of her logically minded partner, Rachel reopens the twenty-five-year-old investigation that lures her into the coldest reaches of the Appalachian Mountains.
