From the tropical lushness of Key West to the Georgian splendor of Bath runs the thread of a painful past, merging dangerously with black magic and human slavery to create a terrifying maelstrom of suspense.
Following a devastating hurricane that claimed the life of her husband, Madeleine Frank has fled the Florida Keys for the tranquil surroundings of Bath. But as a psychotherapist trying to help patients heal after traumatic events, she knows only too well it is impossible to recover from some losses.
Just as she is starting to forget the scars of her past, Madeleine is thrown off balance by the arrival of a new patient. Sensing something familiar in this damaged and hostile woman, Madeleine is disturbed to discover that strains of her patient’s childhood eerily echo her own darkest secret.
The increasingly complex relationship between Madeleine and her client, Rachel, will unleash a terrifying series of events which neither could have predicted – and which neither can control.
At the heart of the terror lies the fate of a child.
