When a man's wife goes missing in Australia, things quickly go from a missing persons case to a murder when the perpetrator turns himself into police. While the man openly confesses to the killing, he refuses to say why he did it.
Ryan King, husband of the murdered Sasha King, wants to know what really happened and why. When local police seem disinterested in finding a motive after getting a full confession, King gets in touch with a friend in America. Troubleshooter and private investigator Dan Mason travels to Australia to get to the bottom of the mystery.
With not much to go on and zero local knowledge, Dan finds himself against the odds on foreign soil. His client wants answers. Why was Sasha killed? What was she involved in that led to her murder? And the only person who has the answers refuses to talk.
The chance finding of a mysterious ring at the murder scene is Dan's only clue. Little does he know what a dark world that ring is going to lead him into. In a crazy world of debauchery and bizarre rituals, Dan finally unravels the truth, but it could end up costing him his life.
