It was the most savage storm in Michigan that anyone could remember. For three days, a blanket of snow in from the north covering woods and interstates alike, six feet deep. All but the most desperate locals stayed inside. But one man is out. Walking into the fury of the storm, Norman Haas has escaped from the State Penitentiary and seeks justice from those who put him there - those who "framed" him for a crime he can barely remember. The Sheriff, Del Maki must painstakingly track him down through the backwoods and streets. He must catch him before he reaches his targets. But when the cold comes down and darkness everywhere, who is really the killer? And who the victim?
