"A mesmerizing storyteller whose fascination with the fine points of human weakness and deft touch for the total gross out keep the pages turning." - Publishers Weekly
For up and coming politician Gene Keiller an attraction to a beautiful woman is no strange thing. But Lorie Semple is no ordinary woman . . . she has a secret . . . she has history . . . and when attraction becomes obsession he takes his first steps on a perilous journey where myth and reality collide with devastating consequences. A savage beast is unleashed and by the time he discovers the truth about the mysterious beauty who has so captivated his soul it is far too late to run.
"That people," they are called, for no man can bring himself to speak their name out loud . . . and their obscene secret is about to be revealed.
