The Last Town

pinesImagine waking up in an unknown place; you are obviously seriously hurt or at least had be recently.  You are not sure who you are, but you find yourself in an idyllic small town.  You are hungry but you have no money, no wallet, no identification and your head screams from the headache growing inside.  As your memory comes fittingly back you start to retrace your steps and are met with what seems like passive aggressive uncooperativeness bordering on hostility.  In Pines, Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke has come to Wayward Pines in search of two colleagues who have gone missing.  They were last heard from in this small town in Idaho.
