(From the publisher):
The subconscious. The unexplored part of the human mind. Home of the Shadow, the evil side of every man, woman and child, capable of creating chaos, insanity and death...
In New York, a young English writer David Blake is preparing research for his new book with the help of Jonathan Mathias, an enigmatic and powerful man who claims to have mastered the secret of the Shadow. Revered by millions as a healer and psychic, is Mathias all he seems?
At the Metaphysics Centre in France, Alain Joubert and Michael Lasalle are using hypnosis in an attempt to 'unlock' the hidden areas of the mind, while at the Institute of Psychical study in England investigator Kelly Hunt is also striving to discover the key to the mind through the use of drugs.
The two organisations are supposed to be working together but Joubert is reluctant to share his knowledge with anyone but Kelly's superior, Dr Vernon - a man with his own reasons for needing to know the secrets of the subconscious. Both Vernon and Joubert, it appears, have something to hide - secrets they will stop at nothing to protect. And when Kelly and Blake combine their skills to search for the answers the secret of the Shadow leads to a series of horrific deaths and a shattering climax which threatens the very foundations of society itself.
Trust no one. For nothing is what it seems and the worst nightmares become reality in a world where truth turns to madness, evil and death. That is the power of Shadows...
