Desire can take any form, can become any fantasy… but it must be fed with life. When a strange woman appears in a small coastal California town, death follows. Only Corey—in love with the beautiful, intelligent, quiet Angela who seems unable to love the boy who so adores her—begins to see what is happening. But no one, not even Corey, can possibly believe what he suspects… and the bizarre murders continue.
