(From the publisher):
A popular priest lies dead of a heroin overdose in a Cleveland apartment, following an apparent tryst with a high-priced callgirl. Nick Stella knew the man, and he knows salable news when he finds it. But there is something waiting for the struggling freelance journalist on the dead cleric's e-mail that suggests this is not just another sordid case of fatal human frailty. A clue, a warning, a threat in the words of a great poet cries out that this was no accident. And it's beckoning Nick into the dark, twisted and terrifying mind of a psychopath.
In an affluent Ohio suburb a world away, Amelia Saintsbury's computer screen carries the same cryptic message. Someone is watching her...and waiting. A nightmare stands just outside her door, ready to devour everything and everyone she cares about - her life, her home, her wayward husband, her innocent little girl - uniting Amelia and an unorthodox city reporter in a desperate hunt for a killer.
Beacuse twenty years ago, an elite group of brilliant, arrogant youths gathered for a Halloween night celebration of life, sex, art, drugs, and freedom...and something terrible happened. Because a beautiful young woman was abased and destroyed that night - and all who participated must die in appropriate ways - but only after watching their worlds die before them. Because it is reunion year, a time of remembrance, a time of celebration, a time of reckoning and poetic justice.
And the party has just begun.
