Rye Nova has suffered with visions and night-terrors for most of his life.
Striving to control his PTSD anxiety, Mama Reese and Turnip his dog, continue to act as a ballast in Rye's guarded world.
Recently diagnosed with a brain tumor, Rye struggles with his purpose and future. If that were not enough of a burden, - now he is hearing voices.
Following a chance encounter with Evelyn Sterling- who has her own experience in 'jabbering' – Rye now has an ally to assist in navigating this new ability.
When three women go missing in Rye's newly adopted city of New Orleans, he half-heartedly looks into the disappearances as a way to keep busy. That is when he is not attending a shady poker game. Both activities being thinly veiled attempts to distract his mind from the creature growing in his head.
Between what Rye sees in his terror-visions and hears in his troubled mind, will he know enough to stop the misguided drive of the killer?
Aaron Thibodeaux cannot stand being a lawyer anymore. Once he meets Lilith a new direction, a new dream, becomes the end goal. Lilith was Aaron's original lucky charm and now that she is gone, he must find a replacement. Mae-Lin continues the winning streak until she used up her three chances. Kristin was also given her three chances, until she too disappointed Aaron. They were both discarded. Now Ingrid was in his possession and proving her worthiness as Aaron's most rewarding lucky charm. His dream was now within reach.
That is until Aaron becomes too greedy ...and sits down at the poker table next to Rye Nova.
