A spine-chilling look into the future. Fourteen-year-old Corgan is a genetically engineered soldier, raised in an isolated computer-generated environment for the purpose of one war, now only two weeks away. Suddenly, his sheltered existence is shattered when he meets his fellow warriors: ten-year-old genius Brig, a mutant military strategist, and Sharla, whose computer decoding abilities are unsurpassed.

In this fast-paced adventure, the Landons trail a wounded wolf in Yellowstone National Park. The park is abuzz with rumors of a wolf attack. Meanwhile, a killer stalks the woods. Unaware of the danger, Jack and Ashley are more concerned about rebellious teenage foster child, Troy Haverson. From the opening moments at Old Faithful through 48 action-packed hours, the tension builds: What is lodged in the wolf's radio collar?

The book's afterword, by Yellowstone's Michael K. Phillips, explores the park's Wolf Restoration Program.
