Nick flees to the lonesome high desert in search of redemption and takes a job patrolling wildlife refuges. But then he stumbles across a girl’s body ritually placed in a gully. Her murder is only the beginning, and Nick must face humanity’s heart of darkness once again if he’s to stop a killer from turning even more gullies into graves.
