Are three stray dogs and a retired Marine enough to save the world?
Shadeland, Indiana seemed like the perfect little town for Casper Brown and his family to start afresh after half a lifetime devoted to the service of his country. But oftentimes the most terrifying nightmares spring from the happiest of dreams.
Not long after arriving in town, Casper runs afoul of a pair of deadly brothers who have staked out the local “big cat” refuge as the base for their newest criminal venture. But the situation is far more dire than anyone could imagine, for an inexplicable evil now stalks the forests of Shadeland, and the body count is quickly rising.
Then there are the strange trio of stray dogs that have captured the hearts of Casper’s wife and children. Casper isn’t sure which disturbs him more, the dogs’ proclivity for killing other animals, or the fact that he can somehow see through their eyes while they kill. Are the dogs somehow involved with the missing persons? Casper doesn’t trust them, but no one would believe him if he told them why.
Something terrible is headed his way, and Casper Brown will need to rely on all his training if he’s to save his family. But he’s learning firsthand that in Shadeland it’s difficult to know just who is hunting whom.
