From the high desert of New Mexico comes a tale of mystery, murder and redemption.
When journalist Kevin Pitcairn receives a disturbing letter from a serial killer, he is drawn into a compelling journey with profound psychological and spiritual implications, not just for the murderer, but for himself and society as a whole. As he tries to investigate and then tell the story, he finds himself battling his own inner demons and sordid history. Events conspire to propel an isolated matter to a national stage and audiences that are increasingly hostile.
Amid the rugged terrain and beautiful culture of New Mexico, a host of characters emerge to surround Pitcairn. Some present great challenges while others ally themselves with him as he is swept toward a destiny he can neither foresee nor control.
Forced to explore the roots of human psychology and sanity Pitcairn must navigate moral and philosophical realms. What is the nature of evil? What powers of choice do humans actually possess? How may we be redeemed? And in the end, by what means may we reconcile with ourselves?
