When a paroled sex offender is murdered in Yucaipa, CA, a California town nestled in the foothills below Big Bear, a shortage of reporters forces food critic Madison Young to cover the story. She soon discovers her quiet town harbors secrets.
While interviewing a witness, she jots down one seemingly insignificant word that will link to a chain of murders across the country, and to a secret society, a vast and deadly organization whose tentacles invade her own life.
When threats to stop the investigation turn deadly, Madison turns to family friend, San Bernardino homicide detective Dexter Quinn. Together they unravel the layers of deceit to discover a terrifying adversary - one who'll stop at nothing to protect the Society's secrets.
