Overview

Darden State is taking its toll on Trey Campbell, a psychiatrist who treats the insane. His dreams are filled with the sight of their dead eyes, by the sound of their anguished screams. He is haunted by images of blood-stained uniforms, broken bodies, and broken minds. The stench of madness has clung to him every night for fourteen years. Trey Campbell needs to get away. "You shouldn't have left me alone." Between the jagged cliffs of San Pedro and the crystal blue waters off Catalina Island there is nothing but peace and isolation. For Trey, his wife, and their two children, it is just the sanctuary they need. For two weeks, life will be good. Better than good. And the best part is no one will be able to find them... "I will not be ignored." Once, Agnes Hatcher was a suburban school teacher, a member of the Junior League and a subscriber to the Los Angeles Philharmonic. She also had a fondness for knives that earned her the nickname, the Surgeon. Today she is the most brilliant and brutal psychopath at Darden State. In her twisted fantasy life she shares an unbreakable karma with the man she believes to be her devoted lover. But this weekend Trey has abandoned her. And Agnes is feeling very unforgiving. "I'm coming for you." Now darkness has fallen on the Campbells' isolated vacation retreat. A diabolical game of wits is about to begin. Because what Agnes has planned for Trey and his family is beyond anything any of them can imagine...
