When he sleeps, the hunt begins.
When a young hunting guide from a remote island in Alaska is found brutally murdered, his naked body is discovered in the Cascade Mountains outside Seattle—the shocking pinnacle to a grisly Totem of body parts. Nathan Applewhite is the fourteenth victim of a cunning serial killer who targets and stalks young men.
FBI profiler Ryker Townsend and his team investigate and find no reason for Nate to have mysteriously vanished from his isolated home. But Townsend has a secret he won’t share with anyone—not even his own team—that sets him on the trail of a ruthless psychopath, alone. He’s plagued by recurring nightmares—seen through Nate’s dead eyes—that slowly chips away at his mental stability. Is he burning out and losing his mind—becoming unfit for duty—or is the last victim reaching out to him from the grave?
Townsend must piece together horrific flashes of memory, imprinted on the retinas of a dead man, the last images Applewhite saw when he died. Each clue brings him closer to a killer who knows how to hide in plain sight, but when the dead man has the skills of a hunting guide, Ryker has the perfect ally to track down a killer—the last victim.
