A SADISTIC SERIAL KILLER suddenly starts terrorizing the remote corner of a northwestern Montana vacation paradise. The killer’s blatantly shocking butchery is marked by his use of hand-crafted primitive weapons and the taunting notes left at each crime scene. His signature calling card is a colorful Native American dream catcher that he hangs near his victims’ bodies.
This elusive “Dream Catcher Butcher” soon garners statewide and national media attention. As his body count climbs and fear spreads, pressure builds on County Sheriff Frank Welles and his deputies to find and take down the depraved, revenge-driven psychopath.
Joining Sheriff Welles in the methodical search is his brother-in-law, Marcus Hawkes. A wounded warrior ex-Navy SEAL, Hawkes has found the Big Sky backcountry a refuge from the horrors of Middle Eastern warfare. Working together, Hawkes and Welles put the puzzle’s blood-splattered pieces together and zero in on finding and stopping the killer.
The eventual mano-y-mano mountainside showdown deep inside the madman’s lair – where he and his latest female captive have taken refuge to make a final stand – is a taut, violent faceoff fated to end with even more blood being shed.
