John Newton is a successful writer of true-life crime stories, specializing in unsolved murders from the past. He has a happy family life with his schoolteacher wife and two children. And he has a nice new home in the rural countryside. Life is good for John Newton.

Until the letters start arriving… Dark, mysterious letters. Deadly letters with demands.

And then everything changes…

Until John Newton is faced with a seemingly insurmountable dilemma: he can choose between the survival of his daughter… or the rest of his family – not both.
