With true-to-life, unforgettable characters, Box has created a thriller that delves into issues close to the heart--the pervasiveness of greed, the banality of evil, and the truth about what constitutes a family.

A 12 year-old girl and her younger brother go on the run in the woods of northern Idaho, pursued by four men they have just watched commit murder. The kids soon find they don't know whom they can trust among their LA transplant neighbours, including hundreds of retired Southern California cops.
