In the rugged mountains of upstate New York, a predator unlike any other is stalking and seducing his prey. Endowed with abilities and instincts far more advanced than any man, he is guided only by the desire to survive, and to feed. Dr. Terri Barnard knows something is wrong.

He is a monstrous miracle of modern science set loose upon the world, and with him comes a hunger that will never be sated....
