Little Timothy Cutter has a secret. He knows the truth behind his parents' inexplicable deaths. He knows about the runa: ageless, bodiless, a shadow thing that invades a human host and steals its victim's soul with a kiss ...
Robert Thorn, too, has a secret. Twelve years ago he unleashed the runa on the world. Ever since, he has been stalking it across two continents, following a trail of corpses that cast no shadows. He has sworn to stop the runa ... and Timothy is the key.

In the concrete canyons and shadowed hilltops of Los Angeles, Timothy, Rachel, and Thorn find themselves locked in a deadly dance, as mankind's oldest enemy inexorably closes in ...

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
