Robert John Mercer is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Mercer is a highly skilled, respected, and intelligent soldier who uses his position as a Military Police sergeant and his skills as a sniper to stalk and attack young women around the US Army installation at Ft. Bragg, NC. Mercer uses his street smarts and expertise in criminal forensics to bewilder his victims and contaminate the crime scenes as he strikes again and again, leaving his victims hesitant to report violations they can barely remember.
Laura Fox is an attractive, strong, and enthusiastic young female Special Agent in the U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Division (CID); the Army's version of the FBI. Laura's values are rooted in her Native American heritage, faithfully passed down from her grandmother. Laura believes in doing what is right; her only weakness is her compassion. She allows herself to become emotionally involved in her cases, and when the specters of Mercer's crimes appear, her good intentions inadvertently put her in mortal danger.
Mercer quickly focuses his sights and appetite on Agent Fox when she begins to investigate his attacks, but Laura is so consumed in the hunt for clues to break the case that she is unaware of the lurking danger. Soon Mercer will be a threat Laura won't be able to ignore. As this fast-paced novel speeds toward its astonishing climax, the hunter becomes the hunted in a shocking chronicle of desperation and survival.
