The Fire Brigade is the hottest rock band in all the land, a fact that struggling music journalist Devin MacDiarmid can't seem to escape. When he gets a call from old friend Luke Winter, who happens to be the band's lead singer, an offer is made that is too good to refuse – a chance to chronicle the Fire Brigade's new tour. Believing this is his chance to land in the big leagues Devin accepts, putting aside his feelings of jealousy at his friend's astronomical success. Expecting the road to be one big party, Devin is shocked to find that life with the Fire Brigade is a far cry from his rock n' roll dreams. But what seems pleasant and wholesome on the surface proves to be far more sinister than the excesses of stardom. As the tour travels deeper into America's heartland, and into darkness itself, Devin begins to fear that the cost of success might come at his very soul.
