(From the publisher):
After Lilah Kemp, a schizophrenic ex-librarian, inadvertently lets Kurtz escape from Conrad's Heart of Darkness, she must search for a Marlow to help her deal with this literary villain. Meanwhile, the city is becoming increasingly chaotic and terrifying. The rich and powerful are engaged in a web of depravity, a new and horrifying disease called sturnusemia has swept the city, and severely traumatized children are turning up at the local psychiatric institutes. Kurtz seems to be at the centre of it all. Can Lilah stop him before it's too late?
