“With all the dreams I’ve been having, there is one thing I can take comfort in. And that’s the fact they are my dreams. If they weren’t my dreams, if they weren’t something I decided, subconsciously even, that is when I would start to be truly worried.
“I now know what I need to do to make the dream go away.”
A priest hangs stripped and crucified on the wall of an abandoned brewery – the first in a series of grisly murders plaguing the city of Courtsdale. A recurring nightmare of blood, intimacy, and death haunts the dreams of investigative journalist Steven Carvelle.
Someone stalks the city, and with inside access from Detective Kevin Miles, Steven investigates – searching on his own for the connection tying the terrifying events together.
But as the search unfolds and the murders strike closer and closer to home, Steven comes to the terrifying realization that the killings bear an uncanny resemblance to his dreams.
Is it connection? Or coincidence?
