When Detective Sergeant Finley Winterbourne was called to investigate poachers in the southern English countryside, he was caught by a sudden twisting light and found himself trapped in a room of nothingness as he was sexually assaulted. Dumped back where he'd been taken from, he learned he was neither the first man this had happened to, recently, nor would he be the last -- unless he put an end to it.
But as Finn investigated the assaults, he found several of the other men this might have happened to were dead, and two more had almost been killed. Not only that, but he now found his entire life had been shifted from being a casually heterosexual male to a gay man with strong feelings for one of his fellow victims...a man who might still be targeted for death.
None of this made any sense, but the more Finn learned, the more he was forced to accept the terrifying reality that something impossible and evil was happening, something that could come and go whenever it pleased and crush whomever it pleased, and he had no idea how to prevent that...or even fight back.
After all...how can you stop a serial killer who kills no one and doesn't even exist?
Four men have been raped and murdered in London and the Metropolitan Police think Devlin Pope, an American businessman, had something to do with it. Why? Because while reeling from news that his mother’s body had been discovered twenty years after her disappearance, he sexually assaulted a young British constable who was working undercover to help catch the maniac.
Of course, Devlin is arrested and the police don’t believe anything he tells them, despite him obviously being horrified at the torturous deaths that were inflicted on innocent men. Besides, he can prove he was in America when three of the murders occurred. Problem is, he also has a history of brutalizing men who’ve crossed him. But since Reg, that constable, had done nothing to anger his inner beast -- except be in the wrong place at the wrong time -- Devlin’s explanations sound false to everyone ... even himself.
Why? He’s experiencing something he never has, before -- shame over his actions -- and he’s spinning headlong into chaos ... because he has fallen in love with Reg, a man who’s married, has children, is heterosexual ... and hates even the thought of being near him.
Then Devlin learns the police do have another suspect and they are hoping he will help prove that man is the murderer. Instead, he comes to believe they have focused on the wrong individual, but they won’t listen to his suspicions. Now he must find the killer, himself ... because to his horror, since Reg looks like the dead men he has continued to put himself in harm’s way -- and it appears he has become the madman’s next target.
And there seems to be nothing Devlin can do to keep a man he loves but knows he can never have from being butchered.
