Zack Pruitt is a river guide long on skill but short on nerve. Back in the Sierra Nevada, Zack signs on for a high-water river trip with three other guides and eleven clients. As the flotilla careens toward Gallows—a brutal rapid that's always terrorized him—events spin out of control, and Zack discovers that for once running is not an option.
