For the past three months, Eve Renner has struggled to remember the night she was nearly killed and her lover was tried for murder. She remembers getting the anxious call from a friend from her past: "Meet me at the cabin. I've got evidence" She remembers seeing that friend lying in a pool of blook. And she remembers a horrifying glimpse of her lover Cole Dennis's face as a gunshot plunged her into darkness. Now, her memory and emotions scarred. Eve has returned to New Orleans to forget the past. But the past will not be forgotten. Eve's shattered memory has helped Cole walk on murder charges just as a new series of killings begins. The lasest murders are bizarre and baffling. The victims are killed in a ritual fashion, a series of numbers tattooed into their bodies. 212,101,111,323. There is no clue to their meaning, no connection to the victims except once: Our Lady of Vitures Hospital, the crumbling old asylum that was once the scene of unspeakable madness. For Eve, it was a second home as a child. Her father was a doctor there, and she spent hours exploring its secret chambers, hidden rooms, and forbidden passageways. Somewhere in its decaying rooms lied the key to a terrible crime, a betrayal beyond imaging, whose echos are now being felt with a vengence-a c rime that seems to lead to Eve herself. And the only man she can trust with the search is Cole, her former lover and just possibly, a cold blooded killer.
