Eight women raped, left hanging naked, degraded and dehumanised. Terror strikes the tiny, Pennine town of Scarbeck. And now, hypnosis researcher Felix Croft is drawn into the web of insanity created by the serial killer, Dominus. In a world where nothing is as it seems, not even the written word, Croft searches frantically for his missing partner, bringing him into stark confrontation with the police and drawing him to a final, life or death battle with the evil genius that is Dominus.

And meanwhile, the trail of callous rape and cold-blooded murder continues.
