Amid long, wild grass, a snake slithers, hidden.
Hidden until a man opens his eyes...
Awaking with amnesia in St Mary's Hospital, after a near-fatal freak accident, he is known only as Luc. With the help of Evie Gold, the kind, young woman who found him, he starts a new life - a second chance, a clean slate.
A bond burgeons between them.
But disturbing dreams of dark deeds become waking recountings. A blackness is uncoiling - seductive, familiar and dangerously provocative.
An ancient craving stirs; an old addiction rises.
Nothing is as it seems, and as reality crumbles, Luc finds himself asking, not just who he is, but...
Who is Evie?
