In the heat of summer, a previously undetected serial killer, dubbed The Botanist by the press, re-emerges in the rural, southern Utah town of Mt. Dessicate. Detective Cody Oliver becomes the lead detective in the case as Mt. Dessicate is plunged into chaos. Alexandra Thompson, a beautiful woman from the past, may be the only person who has come face to face with the killer and lived to tell the tale. There’s just one problem: the killer remembers her, too, and is determined not to let her get away this time.
A baffling case, a media circus, an unsupportive father, and too many leads for Mt. Dessicate’s tiny PD to handle alone leave Cody fighting just to catch his breath. Meanwhile, hands come out of the darkness to snatch at Alex every time Cody’s back is turned, and his desire to protect her soon becomes more than just professional. If Cody can’t piece together the mysterious past of the land of the mass grave, decipher how Alex is connected to the killer, and bring the Botanist to justice—or at least to civilization—he may lose the people in his life he’s come to value most. He must confront the Botanist on feral ground or risk being the only one left standing in a desolate, desert graveyard.
