The annual backpacking trip into the White Mountains marks the start of another year at New Hampshire's elite Saxton Mills prep school. In science teacher Will Buchanan's group this year is Dee Tyler, the unhappy daughter of rock singer Jonathan Tyler. Will and Tyler were friends long ago, and loved the same woman--Dee's mother.
Halfway up the trail, Dee disappears. Has she made good on her promise to run back to L.A.? Kidnapped? Or worse?
Will is held responsible for the girl's disappearance, and is suspended from his duties. Slowly he begins to believe he's been set up--a hunch that may prove fatal as he's plunged into a wilderness game of survival against a faceless enemy closing in for the kill.
