From the cover: “This is the story of one man’s awakening to an inner nightmare as old as humanity.
A young American lives an ordinary London life — until his mind and body are disrupted by the promptings of a horrifying violence. Suddenly he finds himself alone, without weapons or clues to help him confront what stalks within. Bewildered and agonised, he seeks help from the only quarter available: a gifted clairvoyant.
Yet even her skills have only a slim chance of success against instincts which have revealed themselves as murderous. Rooted in his past, in his very being, they compel him to destroy not only strangers but even those nearest to him. Soon he is waging a terrible struggle against the unknown part of him from which there will be no way back; which, in Hyde Park and the familiar streets of London, is transforming him into a creature that walks the night.
This is a gripping and stunningly believable tale.”
