He rushes to the rescue and meets Kat Holley, a resident at the local hospital. She pulls him out of his depression and gets him to help her seek revenge on the psychopath who ruined both of their lives. Along with a black dog named Paco, they search for a cavedwelling former marine, Iden Cantu, who uses his training to elude both the Atlanta police and the feds. Kat and Marcus hunt him deep in the forests along the Georgia-Tennessee border. The country may bebeautiful, but Cantu turns it into a death trap with his night-vision equipment and high-powered rifle. The pair manages to handle the ordeal with humor and a touch of romance.
