A STOLEN CHILD, AN ANCIENT EVIL, A FATHER'S DESCENT, AND
THE LITERARY MASTERPIECE THAT HOLDS THE KEY TO HIS DAUGHTER'S
Professor David Ullman is among the world's leading authorities on
demonic literature, specializing in Milton's Paradise
Lost. Not that David is a believer-he sees what he teaches as
a branch of the imagination and nothing more. So when the
mysterious Thin Woman arrives at his office and invites him to
travel to Venice and witness a "phenomenon," David is hard-pressed
to overcome his skepticism.
But there are forces at work beyond anything David can imagine, and
they will stop at nothing to ensure that the professor does not
escape their grasp. Against his better judgment, David, accompanied
by his beloved daughter, Tess, finds himself traveling to Venice,
where an unspeakable horror awaits.
Soon David is pulled into a journey that will redefine what he is
willing to believe. Guided by symbols and riddles from the pages of
Paradise Lost, David races to save his daughter. If he
fails, he will lose Tess forever.
