After a tragic accident kills their parents, Meg and Susan come to live in suburbia with a distant aunt. Little do they know that their lives are about to get infinitely worse.
The year is 1969. Three small town teenagers are bound together by an act of terror one of them committed four years before. A local cop can't let this unsolved crime rest. Something must give.
September. A beautiful New York editor retreats to a lonely cabin on a hill in the quiet Maine beach town of Dead River-off season-awaiting her sister and friends. Nearby, a savage human family with a taste for flesh lurks in the darkening woods, watching, waiting for the moon to rise and night to fall. And before too many hours pass, five civilized, sophisticated people and one tired old country sheriff will learn just how primitive we all are beneath the surface, and that there are no limits at all to the will to survive.
The sheriff of Dead River thought he had killed them off ten years ago-a cave-dwelling tribe of cannibals. But somehow the clan survived. And now the residents of this isolated town are fighting for their lives....
