Overview

A popular priest lies dead of a heroin overdose in a Cleveland apartment, following an apparent tryst with a high-priced call girl.

A freelance journalist recognizes a great story-salacious and saleable--in the cleric's demise...and follows it into the twisted, terrifying mind of a psychopath.

While in an affluent suburb a world away, a cryptic threat written in a great poet's words appears on the computer screen of a long-suffering wife and mother. And suddenly she knows that a nightmare stands just outside her door, waiting to devour everything she loves.

Because twenty years ago, something terrible happened at a Halloween night gathering of brilliant, arrogant youths...Because it is reunion year, a time of remembrance and celebration; a time of reckoning and poetic justice...And the party is just beginning.

"A real-page-turner...The novel is, like the nameless killer's victims, well executed-and, like the killer himself, fiendishly twisted."(— Booklist )
