She's never met either of them, not yet, but soon one will want her love, and the other, her eyes.
It's been a long hot summer, and the rivers are running dry. The drought brings the devil to the small town of Burgess on the eastern edge of California, on the dusty plains near Death Valley. And they don't call it death valley for no reason.
When a woman is found murdered and mutilated in a dried up river bed, her hair savagely shaved off and her eyes cut out, young detective Jack Slade gets his first piece of real action, something he's been yearning for in his quiet post out in the middle of nowhere. But as the bodies begin to pile up and the mystery grows more tangled, Jack soon realizes that he might just have bitten off more than he can chew.
Jessie Trent lives a quiet life, and one she hates. She's tasted something more, but the death of her mother two years back has forced her home, back to the town she left for good reason, a town she still has plans to leave. When her friend is found murdered, however, she finds herself standing on the path between Jack and the so called 'Butcher of Burgess': one vowing to protect her, the other....to kill her.
