Cal Bradleys marriage to Marie is the stuff of romance. Then one night, a 19-year-old boy named Peter Blue goes on a rampage. Friendless and suicidal, Blue is sent to Bradley for treatment. For the patient, it's a last chance at redemption. For the doctor, it's the beginning of a journey into a world of fear, deception, and murder. Because somehow, Blue's extraordinary inner life is linked to Cal's reality. And in the mystery of the teenager's mind lies the key to a more terrible mystery: Marie Bradley's hidden past.
