Bushfires are raging around Sydney. In the midst of the chaos a sadistic killer is on the loose.

When missing nurse Lisa Broderick is found brutally raped and murdered, panic spreads through the city like wildfire. Rachel Addison, a police psychologist and the only woman on the homicide squad, is assigned to the case. Starting out as a hunter, Rachel gradually becomes convinced she is the prey. But this murder is forcing her to confront the mystery of her own painful past and she can no longer be sure what is real and what is imagined.

If Rachel is to survive, she must unlock her memory and face the fear that she has kept hidden in the darkest recesses of her mind.
