Jonathan Flite wants to disappear. Apart from being Rhode Island’s infamous nurse killer about to walk free, he’s also facing more public scrutiny than ever before. The FBI has begun taking his connection to the long-lost Idle County Seven seriously, drawing links between people Jonathan claims to remember and last summer’s nuclear terrorist attack in Geneva, Switzerland. Furthermore, the perpetrator from last fall’s murders at Crescent Rehabilitation Center is still at large, leaving a number of questions unanswered about how and why the crimes might have been linked to the events in Europe.
When an anonymous stranger begins sending Jonathan letters encouraging him to tell the truth about the Idle County Seven mystery, his loved ones brace themselves for the onslaught of attention it might bring. As media reports creep toward the truth, the scientific and religious implications of Jonathan’s psychological condition begin to pique public interest—and expose those who would resort to violence in order to keep them under wraps.
