Jon Summers is missing! Retired and doing animal research in the Canadian north woods, he is attacked by hired killers. At the same time back home, family members and some old friends are kidnapped, being held hostage at the family cabin. Included are several high-ranking politicians. The goal, break of an old enemy out of prison. Shock waves course through the law enforcement and intelligence communities as information sources and communications are compromised. Rescue attempts fail. Spies and conspirators seem to lurk everywhere. Traditional tactics and methods for freeing the hostages are rendered useless, frustrating authorities.

Unbeknownst to the kidnappers a shadowy figure shrouded by fog lurks in the forest, stalking them. Spirits of the forest are angered and ghosts from the past resurrected. Joined by the Summers family and an interesting assortment of mysterious characters, they unite to face this clever and ruthless enemy. With hostages in jeopardy and time running out they must act. How will they foil the kidnappers plan? Will they be able to free the hostages before they are sacrificed?
