Three beautiful women are murdered in an Irish pub in Syracuse. The cops think it’s an open and shut case, pointing the finger at bar owner James John Smith. But when the police fail to find Smith or any trail to his past, the mother of one of the victims hires former karaoke star and stripper Bill "Free Willy" Tedesco to investigate.
The deeper Tedesco digs, the more secrets of the dead and living surface, and the question of who pulled the trigger becomes more important than why.

Alice Isaacs bears the mark of the afflicted. Unlike the millions before her, she survives. Afraid she is a carrier of the disease, Alice abandons her family and disappears into what remains of the world. Bodies litter the streets. Cities lie in waste. The government ceases to exist. What the Withering doesn’t destroy, the Clan kills, cleansing the world of those they hold responsible. Those like Alice.
Then one night Alice meets Brandon. He brings word of a rural town untouched by the sickness. He promises a future. He reminds her of what it means to feel… of what it means to love.
Yet the Clan is watching. They’re always watching.
Alice emerges from the shadows and follows Brandon’s promises into his hometown. Everything seems perfect. Too perfect. As hard as she tries, she can’t ignore the softly spoken secrets, the vengeful stares from the town’s elite, the smoke streaming from the woods as the clock strikes the witching hour.
With the imminent arrival of the Clan and the town’s sinister past set to reveal itself, Alice must make a stand, not only for herself, but for those she has come to love. Yet the more she learns about the Clan, the town, and herself, the harder it all seems. Because maybe they’re right. Maybe the mark does mean something. Maybe she is more than just a girl on the run. Maybe she did cause the Withering.
