The Boy can see lost souls.
He has never questioned the fact that he can see them. He thinks of them as the Dark Chorus. When he sets out to restore the soul of his dead mother it becomes clear that his ability to see the Dark Chorus comes from within him, it’s a force that he cannot ignore – the last shard of the shattered soul of an angel. To be restored to the kingdom of light the shard must be cleansed of the evil that infects it – but cleaning requires the corrupt souls of the living. With help from Makka, a psychotically violent young man full of hate, and Vee, an abused young woman full of pain, the Boy begins to kill.
Psychiatrist Dr Eve Rhodes is seconded to assist the police investigation into the Boy’s apparently random ritualistic killings. As the investigation gains pace, a patten emerges. And when Eve pulls at the thread from an article in an old psychology journal, what might otherwise have seemed to her a terrible psychotic delusion starts to feel all too real…
Will the Boy succeed in restoring the angel’s soul to the light? Can Eve stop him or will she be lost to the realm of the Dark Chorus?
