Hired to find a boy gene missing in Doraville, North
Carolina, Harper Connelly and her brother Tolliver head
there-only to discover that the boy was only one of several
who had disappeared over the previous five years. All of
them teenagers. All unlikely runaways.
All calling for Harper.
Harper soon finds them-eight victims, buried in the half-
frozen ground, all come to an unspeakable end. Afterwards,
what she most wants to do is collect her fee and get out of
town ahead of the media storm that's soon to descend. But
when she's attacked and prevented from leaving, she
reluctantly becomes a part of the investigation as she
learns more than she cares to about the dark mysteries and
long-hidden secrets of Doraville-knowledge that makes her
the next person likely to rest in an ice-cold grave.
