Sheriff Ray Cochran has dealt with cryptids lurking in the shadows of Baker County before, but nothing has prepared him for this. With Halloween mere days away, a young boy is suddenly taken by a wood ape and later found dead in the nearby forest. What follows is a no-holds-barred effort by Cochran and two government agents to locate the rogue wood ape and destroy it before any else gets hurt. Will they find it before the streets of Dunn are crawling with costumed children eager to trick-or-treat for candy? If they don’t, more blood will almost certainly be shed.
