When a local girl's body is found brutally stabbed in Maryvale's woods, Sheriff Cas Larkin suspects members of a high-school "club" that smacks of devil worship.
Then livestock goes missing, the county judge begins standing in Cas's way at every turn, and local students report being coerced into dark ceremonies.
Now Cas must pick up the pace and dig deep before Maryvale gets any stranger...or there may be the devil to pay.
