In a small New York town, a deranged man holds over one hundred schoolchildren hostage. . .
With the SWAT team about to go in, the gymnasium suddenly explodes in flames. Fortunately, all the students escape–except ten-year-old Noah Corbin. Noah's mother, Haley, is frantic. Was her son killed in the explosion? Did he somehow wander away from the scene, hurt and confused?
Or did someone take him?
Haley hires ex-FBI agent Randall Shane because she needs the truth. Their investigation leads them to a desolate area of the Rocky Mountains, and into the resort compound of a notoriously secretive cult ruled by the rich and powerful.
Haley knows they have something to do with Noah's disappearance. But they will protect their secrets. No matter what.
