Stephen Woodworth takes us back into the world of the Violets, genetically enhanced humans who serve as portals for the dead. This time around, heroine Natalie Lindstrom and her daughter Callie face evio from the Violet Killer, the serial killer who was murdering Violets and was captured by Natalie. But not until he killed her lover Dan.
Now the Killer is aiding a consortium of corps members who are trying to create violets using a serum concocted by the late Dr. Bartholomew Wax, who before he committed suicide had exterminated his test subjects. now the Corps plans to use a Violet to channel Wax and get him to complete his experiments.
An intriguing sideline in this book is the channeling of such famous artists including The Scream's Svink and even da Vinci and others. Woodworth keeps the plot moving and manages to make this incredible premise work for his readers.
