Marcia's memory is blank, her past shrouded in mystery, and the police are closing in. Despite this, Nick refuses to turn in the woman who saved him, instead choosing to aid her in uncovering the truth.
As they dodge both the police and Dorian Gray, the man who orchestrated Nick's downfall, they find themselves entangled in a web of deceit and danger. With help from unexpected quarters, they must find Dorian Gray before he finds them. As the death toll rises and Marcia's past starts to unravel, they confront a chilling possibility: the killer might be closer than they think.
