John Cray has a secret. For twelve years he has stalked and kidnapped women, setting them loose in the mountains of eastern Arizona, hunting them like animals, and taking their lives. He has left no clues. He is suspected by no one. Or so he thinks.
But now he has a problem. Somebody — a woman whose name he doesn't know — is stalking him.

Cray plans to turn the tables on his mysterious pursuer. He will become the predator, and she — the prey. Once she's in his power, she will tell him who she is and what she's after. And then she will die.
But even Cray isn't prepared to confront the truth when he discovers it — or to deal with the shattering implications of a past he had thought long buried and an obsessive madness he cannot control ...
