Doomed to wander a lonely afterlife, dead detective Kevin Fahey uses his unique perspective to stop a truly evil killer from striking again.
Kevin Fahey was a second-rate cop and a lousy father. Following his untimely death, he roams the world in search of other lost souls. At the Holloway Institute for the Mentally Ill in Delaware, he’s drawn to the troubled patients who also wander inside the lonely rooms and halls. But when a young girl is brutally murdered and her body dumped along the banks of a river that winds behind Holloway—seemingly by a convicted serial killer locked up inside the institute—he decides to conduct a shadowy investigation. The case becomes personal
As Fahey joins the police investigation in tracing the steps of the killer, he must confront personal demons when he spots one of his sons among the troubled youths at Holloway. Worse, when the killing continues, this time on the grounds of the mental hospital itself, there is a very real possibility that his son’s life is in danger. Fahey must find a way to protect those he loves as well as a way to stop a man he knows to be, quite literally, pure evil.
