(From the publisher):
Jack Stone, outwardly shy and unremarkable, writes works of dark and tortured fantasy which have captured the public imagination. Despite his celebrity status, he is a lonly man whose smart London life is a form of exile. He has painful memories he does not wish to examine, roots he refuses to vist—until he meets Gail, a beautiful empathetic girl who seems to sense the shadows that surround him.
When news arrives of a death in his family, jack is forced to return to the horror that coloured his nightmares for years: his childhood home. There he finds the terror and humilation he remembers from his upbringing, but he discovers something else as well—a revelation more startling than he could have dreamed up in his wildest flights of fantasy.
