Newspaper reporter Robin Hamilton is on a much-needed vacation with her best friend when she comes across a strange scrapbook in a bookstore nestled at the edge of the resort town of Copper Harbor in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The scrapbook details the 1974 disappearance of a 14-year-old girl whose body was never found. Intrigued by the story, Robin talks to friends and family and soon learns of several other cases of teenage girls disappearing across the region during the past three decades. No official connection was ever made because of distance and time, but when another girl, a diabetic, goes missing, Robin begins to see a pattern and races against the clock to save the latest victim from a bizarre fate.
