In yet another experiment to extend human life, scientists accidentally tap into the deepest recesses of the human mind and unleash a force that might well be a terrible curse. For in their desire to use a power they did not understand, they unintentionally unleash a force that will spell the end of Mankind if it cannot be destroyed.
Now an infected creature is loose in the Alaskan wilderness, and the America military is forced to ask the world's greatest tracker, Nathaniel Hunter, to locate the beast and destroy it before it reaches a populated area.
Hunter can track anything, anywhere, anytime. But he is both horrified and shocked as he begins to follow the creature's bloody path leading directly toward a city. For the beast is both more powerful and more merciless than any animal Hunter has tracked before. In fact, it seems to embody the most ancient and darkest heart of Man - a power that Mankind has always feared as the greatest Beast of Prey.
And as Hunter closes on the beast and the final, bloody battle approaches, he frantically realizes that the scientists may have succeeded all too well in their experiment to extend human life ...
For it may have become unkillable.
A veteran novelist and best-selling author, James Byron Huggins' life story reads more like fiction than fact. His career as a writer began normally enough. He received a bachelor's degree in journalism and English Literature from Troy State University and then worked as a reporter for the Hartselle Enquirer in Hartselle, Alabama. Huggins won numerous awards for writing and photography before leaving journalism in 1985. With a desire to help persecuted people in Eastern Europe, Huggins moved to Fort Worth, Texas, to work in conjunction with organizations working in war-torn regions of the world. Huggins helped set up a system used to smuggle information and materials in and out of the Iron Curtain in 1987. Working primarily from the United States, he felt he needed to leave North America and lend more hands-on service, particularly in Romania. As a jack of all trades, Huggins photographed a secret police installation researching the illegal arrests and murders of religious dissidents and continued to orchestrate the smuggling routes used to provide badly needed assistance to the underground. Huggins even found the means of creating and putting into action a code that would allow freer communications between Romanian Christians working for their survival in the West. Needless to say, his life held few creature comforts during this long period. Hunted and often unable to use formal establishments like hotels or hostels, he was sometimes forced to hide in the forests or in protected basements for days at a time. After his time in Romania, Huggins returned to the United States and took up journalism once more. He again worked for a small newspaper and won several awards for writing and editing. Later he became a police officer for the Huntsville Police Department in Huntsville, Alabama. Promoted to Field Training Officer and after distinguished service with the department, he published his first novel, A Wolf Story, to international acclaim. His subsequent novels included The Reckoning, Cain, and Hunter, which were also met with praise and made numerous national bestseller lists. The theatrical rights for Cain and Hunter were subsequently optioned for over one million dollars apiece by Universal and Paramount studios respectively. Huggins is currently working on his tenth novel and lives in North Carolina.
