|Something evil stalks Commercial Street on a festive Halloween night. Only in the cold light of morning does word spread of a gay man's murder.
Beset with her own worries, Private Investigator Alex Peres trusts local law enforcement to investigate. But when the detective-in-charge turns his attention to Alex's friends, she agrees, reluctantly, to do a little poking around of her own. It doesn't take her long to find more questions than answers.
Greed, passion, hatred, fear: which human failing explains the crime? Just as matters begin to make sense, a second killing sends Alex spinning in unexpected directions. If she doesn't think fast, she may not be able to save a third victim: herself.
