To speak to or even smile at Sedge Delorme can be a death sentence. That's why his wealthy friend Dan has paid his rent and bought his food for the last five years, anything to keep innocent people safe. But after boiling an ancient witches' recipe, Sedge believes the nightmare is over. The evil entity who has stalked him since birth is finally powerless. To prove it, he leaves his New York apartment and heads back home to Maine.
A dead body marks the beginning of his journey.
