Former homicide detective John Zandt has an inside track on the perpetrator; his own daughter was one of the victims two years ago. But the key to Sarah's whereabouts lies with Ward Hopkins, a man with a past so secret not even he knows about it. His parents have just died in a car accident, but they leave Ward a bizarre message that leads him to question everything he once believed to be true.
As he begins to investigate his own past, Ward finds himself drawn into the shadowy, sinister world of the Straw Men, and into the desperate race to find Sarah, before her time runs out.
