Twenty years ago a boy named Jack Sawyer travelled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her Territories "twinner" from an agonizing death that would have brought catclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly non-existant hamlet of Tamarack, WI. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories and was compelled to leave the police force when an old happenstance event threatened to awaken those memories. When a series of gruesome murders occur in Western Wisconsin that are reminiscent of those that happened several decades earlier by a mad man named "Albert Fish", the killer is dubbed the "Fisherman" and Jacks buddy the local chief of police begs jack to help the inexperienced force find him. Who are these killings the work of, and what is bringing on these unexpilable dreams that jack has begun to have...?
