Hanklin Purvis enjoys the outdoors, and he loves to hunt. He and his wife, Dorothy, live on a farm in the rural mid-west.Then one summer, things start happening. The first victims are family pets, then wild animals - and Hanklin is suddenly thrust into a series of encounters with a beast he never believed existed.
When people start getting injured, the police get involved. Then the town discovers that the wounds have a deadly bacteria, and the clock is ticking for those infected. The attacker is not human, that's for sure - and it needs to be stopped. Hanklin's neighbor, Francis Wellman, is a Native American who believes she has discovered an ancient antidote.
Will they find the perpetrator of these horrifying attacks?
