She survived the worst attack of her life, but the nightmare isn't over.
Forensic pathologist Eleanor Pascale's colleagues are being systematically buried alive. And she's next. She must solve the case before she becomes another statistic in the serial killer's homicidal rampage. But this time, she's not alone.
Sheriff Weston Ford has learned from his mistakes. Falling for a woman under his protection cost him everything once before and he's not about to let his growing feelings for Eleanor distract him from his job: stopping an unrelenting killer in his town. Only, she's gotten past his guard. And the desire he has for her? It's as dangerous as the past he's tried to bury.
When the body of another forensic pathologist is discovered, Weston fights to stop the Grave Digger from marking his next target for burial: Eleanor.
