Lucas Cantrell is a man with a unique and frightening talent. In the same way that a dowsing rod can locate an underground spring, he has the ability to divine the location of a dead body. Contracted by law enforcement agencies throughout the country to help find the bodies of murder victims, Lucas has no love for his skill, but he understands the sense of closure it gives to the families of the people he finds. When he’s recruited to aid in the search of a serial killer’s property in New Hampshire, his gift becomes a curse. His abilities lead him on a journey into his own past, to a horrible incident from his childhood that may form a direct link to the killer himself.
