Delia Pearce has had a rough few years. Her loving father died and her mother has remarried, attempting to forget Deliah's father by starting "completely over" with her new husband, Jim. But Deliah rejects Jim's attempts at friendliness. She clings to the one thing that is left of her happy past--Ghost Island, willed to her by her father. After three years, she is finally going back.
But, to her dismay, things have changed there, too. The lake's stillness is shattered by violence and intrigue. Armed rangers are searching for Delia's childhood Indian friend, Isaac, who is wanted for the murder of a game warden. Despite the danger, Delia is determined to reach her island. But what she finds there chills her spine with fear. It's too late to get help, but is it too late to escape?
