IT BEGAN AS AN ORDINARY SEARCH.
K9 handler, Ryder Creed and his scent dog, Grace return to Nebraska to join FBI Agent, Maggie O'Dell and Special Investigator, Tommy Pakula on the same task force that helped rescue his sister, Brodie a year ago. But their job is interrupted when a rural Postal carrier finds a black, plastic bag discarded in a grassy roadside ditch. What's inside is shocking to even these seasoned investigators: the partial remains of what appears to be a young woman.
TRUST NO ONE.
Just that morning another young woman has gone missing. Is her disappearance connected? Did she run away? Or was she taken? And is it only a matter of time before she ends up in a roadside ditch?
Ryder agrees to search for her, but an early snowstorm threatens to replace the warm fall temperatures. His scent dog, Grace has never worked in cold and snowy conditions.
THEN EVERYTHING GOES WRONG.
The snow blurs the landscape and grinds life to a halt. As Maggie O'Dell searches for answers about the victim, she begins to uncover a cold-blooded, ruthless killer who has murdered before. By the time Maggie realizes no one has heard or seen Ryder since before the snow began to fall, she fears he and Grace may have walked into the killer's path.
