When a remote camera in a large, rugged expanse at the Land Trust for Wildlife Conservation captures a blurry image of what could be a highland caribou, they contact Alex Carter to investigate.

The people of the nearby town are agitated; Loggers and activists clash over a strip of old-growth forest marked for logging. The murdered body of a park ranger is found hanging in the city park, and Alex learns of a hiker who went missing in the same area the year before.
As she ventures into the forest in search of the endangered animal, she quickly finds herself in a fight for her life, caught between factions fighting for the future of the forest and a killer stalking the dense forests of ancient trees.
