About the book: 
Thirty years ago, a child was found in the New Jersey backwoods.
Living a feral existence and with no memory of his past, the locals just called him Wilde.

On the fourth, a human finger shows up in the mail.
And now Wilde knows this is no game. It’s a race against time to save the girl’s life – and expose the town’s dark secrets…
