Max walks in two worlds. He resides in the borderland between the world of shadowy government conspiracy anbd the world of vengeful ghosts and evil gods, between living flesh and supernatural spirits--between life and death. For Max is the ultimate killer, an assassin powered by the Beast, an inner demon that enables him to kill--and to do it incredibly well.
But the Beast inside Max is very real and very much alive. He is all of Max's dark desires, his murderous impulses, and he won't ever let Max forget that he exists. The Beast IS Max. So it won't be easy for Max to silence the Beast, though he knows that is what he must do to reclaim his humanity. But without the protection of the Beast, Max the assassin will soon find himself the prey, the target of the spirits of his past victims.
