Lani and Liev Blackburn have slid from the frying pan directly into the fires of Hell. When they uncover insinuations of a dangerous conspiracy that can be traced directly back to the foundations of society and permeates every part of life as the world knows it, they realize that to expose this evil is to shake the Earth to its core.
One by one, people begin disappearing. If not for Liev's twisted, genius brother Milo and Lani's talking cat Charming Marvin, the two of them would also be missing--or dead. But someone is still playing games, stalking Lani and everyone connected to her, and the cat's cradle web they're weaving is becoming impossible to escape. Unless they can find a way to expose this massive cover-up and who's behind it all, they'll become the next vanished.

Linny plans to confront Fallon but instead finds an old beau dropped dead on the front steps of the compound, considered her second home. Uncle Dave is everything to her, and Bullard sent her to medical school, yet it’s Fallon she keeps coming back to see.
As her world implodes, the same issues facing Fallon take a turn for the worse, … putting them all in danger.
Izzie is also suspicious of everyone. She’s been to hell and back, all because she was stubborn and angry at Bullard, but she’d never do anything to hurt him. Not knowing anything about the last few months’ trials, she’s horrified to find out why Quinn sought her out. Then he’s horrified when he finds out what happened to her. Working on healing her own soul, she’s desperate to help Quinn find out who attacked the team and potentially killed her uncle.
If she can do anything to help, she will, particularly if it gives her a chance to make amends to the one man who’s always been there for her.
