On a bright June morning, Sam Dalton’s world suddenly crumbles as he learns that his four-year-old daughter, Jessica, has contracted a mysterious disease. Her internal organs are slowly shutting down, one by one, and her doctors are unable to even pinpoint the cause, never mind find a cure. With weary shakes of their heads, they give her less than a month to live.
A chance meeting with a terrifying bleeding-eyed vagrant offers a despairing Sam a possible solution … but at what price?
A tale of love and consequences by the author of Riverwatch and Heretic.
