Someone is murdering female science students at an esteemed university. Against a backdrop of psychological intrigue and creepy healthcare settings, Kenneth Sorin, a young chemistry doctor and medical research associate turned suspense author, starts his own murder investigation with the help of his cat and his new mysterious girlfriend.
The killer removes an eye from each corpse and places emerald crystals into the empty eye sockets. Dr. Sorin—a crystal chemistry and medicinal chemistry specialist—receives strange telephone calls: an old, dead woman phones the author from her grave, encouraging him to look inside himself for the truth. Has he lost his mind? Could he be the killer himself?
