Now, traveling across country, Clay and Adrienne grapple with their longings and their hope, guided only by the map written in Clay's blood. And Adrienne may be Clay's savior or his next victim.
Hodge has written a taut, suspenseful tale of psychological horror that stretches the boundaries of the contemporary horror novel.
Adrienne, a psychologist, discovered Clay in a hospital, his hands recovering from the brutal beating he had given three muggers. When she finds a bizarre genetic abnormality in his blood, Clay shares with her his entire story. He is a man programmed to kill, struggling to outrun the evil in his blood, and tormented by the knowledge that he's not the only one of his kind. Original.
