It is twenty below in Montreal, and for the first time in twenty-five years detective Kellen O'Reilly is going to pieces. Flashbacks frequently take him back to the psychiatric clinic of Coldhaven Manor and the terrifying experiments of Dr. Gregor Satorius.

Now taken to court by his former patients, Satorius is accused of brainwashing them with dangerous drugs and powerful electric shocks. But just reading about the much-publicised trial is enough to blow Kellen's mind. Eager to occupy himself he concentrates on an investigation into a series of inexplicably brutal murders.

But along with Sarah Paradis, glamorous defence counsel for Satorius' fragile victims, Kellen is only drawn deeper into a web of intrigue. Somewhere in the shadowy corners of his memory Kellen knows he has the key to the killers' identities. But he will need to take a mind-altering drug and a nightmarish return to Coldhaven if he is to escape them.
