A sheriff's deputy responding to a 911 hangup stumbles onto the scene of a contract killing at a remote summer home, propelling her into a desperate cat and mouse chase through the adjacent (fictitious) Wisconsin state park. Deaver strives so hard to keep the surprises coming that he doesn't play fair, giving the characters uncanny abilities to second-guess each other. The undeniable excitement of the nighttime chase, however, gives way to a stultifyingly misguided third act, inexplicably focused on the deputy's family problems, which fails to provide a showdown with the villain or follow through on any foreshadowing.
