Travis Wren is hired by the family of a missing novelist, Maggie St. Clair, to find her. His quest takes him to a remote wilderness commune, Pastoral, where the inhabitants believe they are being protected from a plague because of their isolation from the rest of the world.

Now I want more books set here!
