Del Hawthorne's father and three of his friends vanished seven years ago along the Nahanni River--a river of mysterious deaths and disappearances. When one of the missing men surfaces, alive but barely recognizable and aging before her eyes, Del is shocked. Especially when the man tells her something inconceivable. Her father is still alive! Now Del's going back for him, unaware of the terror that lies, waiting...

Inside Cover Excerpt:

Del marched forward, determined to find a sign.

Jake's arm snaked out. "Wait!"

She raised a hand, warding him off, then strode toward the far wall. She made it halfway across the room when the air shifted around her. She stopped.

Peter's jaw dropped and his eyes widened, terrified. Bit by bit, his entire body disintegrated--each molecule separating, stretching grotesquely. He slowly became...dust.

In a flash, Peter Cavanaugh was gone.

Del knew that there were times when a decision must be made, and made fast--regardless of the possible outcome. A decision of fate. Or destiny.

Catching Jake's eye, she threw him a beaming smile. Before he could stop her, she stepped between the crystals, welcoming the sapphire light that skimmed icily up her body.

Jake's mouth opened in horror. "No, Del!"

She dissolved into an infinite number of particles...
