The news hits Mammoth View, California, early on a summer morning: there's been a massacre at one of the camp-sites outside town. It's not clear what happened, but it's obviously bad. And it's not over. As residents panic and head out of town, Police Chief Kenneth Hicks and his deputy set off into the woods to investigate.

The camp-site attack appears to be the perfect coincidence for Billy Lane. Looking for the biggest score of his career so he can send his daughter Tori to college, he's targeted the local bank. But the robbery does not go well and the aftermath goes even worse. The unexpected mass panic by the towns residents has jammed up the one highway out of town, forcing Billy to improvise. He heads up Mammoth Mountain, planning to take a treacherous escape route. Worse, he's learned that his daughter, supposedly safe in a summer camp, is missing.

Over the next twenty-four hours, chaos descends on Mammoth View. Billy will have to find deep wells of courage and ingenuity to survive. Tori, coming to terms with who her father really is, will discover she's much stronger than she ever thought possible. Chief Hicks will face his past personal failures and his present professional ones. All of which leads inexorably to what really happened at the camp-site outside of town.
