In the quiet town of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, a baby vanishes from her bedroom in an opulent lakeside home.

That same night, a young policewoman stumbles into the middle of a horrific crime in an encounter which will bring a sadistic killer right into the heart of her already complicated life. Meanwhile, deep in the woods, a small and shallow grave conceals a secret that Stride and his team must unearth before time runs out...
