With little hard evidence to go on, Sheriff Les Collins closes the case, chalking it up to the work of a rougue bear- just like so many other unsolvable deaths and disappearances that have plagued Hyde River over the years.
But wildlife biologist Steve Benson refuses to let his brother's death remain a mystery. He is joined in his investigation by attractive, auburn-haired Sheriff's Deputy Tracy Ellis who, having grown up in Hyde River, has seen enough swept under the rug by local law enforcment to know that somthing's amiss.
The more townsfolk are pressed for information, the more they close ranks, as if sworn to serecy. As Steve peels away the layers of mystery surrounding Hyde River, he and Tracy are drawn closer to each other and to the town's terrible secret. What they discover is a predator more terrifying than anything they had imagined and a town in the grip of unspeakable evil.
