In Los Angeles, a hot Hollywood director, high on PCP, turns a city
street into a fiery
apocalypse. Five die. Heroic LAPD officer Jack McGarvey is badly wounded and lands
in the hospital for months, uncertain he'll walk again. While he's out of commission, his
wife and young son are left to defend themselves against both the criminals that control an
increasingly violent city and the dead director's cult of fanatic fans. In a lonely corner of
Montana, Eduardo Fernandez, the father of McGarvey's murdered partner, witnesses a
strange nocturnal sight. The stand of pines outside his house suddenly glows with eerie
amber light, and Fernandez senses a watcher in the winter woods. As the seasons
change, the very creatures of the forest seem in league with a mysterious presence.
Fernandez is caught up in a series of chilling incidents that escalate toward a confrontation
that could rob him of his sanity or his life - or both. As events careen out of control, the
McGarvey family is drawn to Fernandez's Montana ranch. In that isolated place they
discover their destiny in a terrifying and firecly suspenseful encounter with a hostile, utterly
ruthless and enigmatic enemy, from which neither the living nor the dead are safe.
