Samantha Tremblay searches for answers to find a killer, and discover herself.
A role-playing game staged in the remote woods of the North East Kingdom, turns deadly when a killer uses the game as a means to seize his victims.
A dead body is discovered in the woods by Samantha, a Forest Ranger who works at Maidstone Lake. The locals call her Sam. She swears to bring the killer to justice for the victim but soon finds herself in over her head, as she works alongside New Hampshire Trooper Zachary Gerard assigned to the case. More bodies turn up and motivation to solve the crimes mount.
Old secrets get in Sam's way, and she isolates herself from others. Mourning her mother, haunted by unanswered questions about the past, she lives with cracked relationships-between herself and her father-her friends.
