It was a store robbery gone wrong when the criminal got away but the victim was hit by a car. Then it happened again.
And Again.
For newly hired detective, Phil Ford, this was beyond coincidence. Told not to investigate further, he couldn't let it go. When he falls into a much larger conspiracy involving death-for-hire, organized crime, and corruption in the Sanford Sheriff's Department; it will cost him more than he knows to get to the truth.

Two city friends spend a weekend camping out in the woods of upstate New York, trying to get away from their hectic lives.
But now it is time to head home.
Heavy fog, a lost map, and no GPS mark the start of their journey on the first day of their trek.
And it only gets worse from there.
Each other.
The threats to their lives grow with each step as they struggle to make it back and it isn't certain if either wants the other to make it.
