Tom Bianco often thinks about how he might find a way to make his life more meaningful. After following the directions in an ancient book that he steals from a dilapidated bookstore his life begins to change in terrifying ways.
At first when he falls in love with Angela, a waitress in a high-class restaurant, he believes the book is bringing him good luck. But when violent compulsive thoughts force their way into his mind he is certain that the book is responsible.
He meets Lilith, an attractive woman who seems determined to become a part of his life. She knows about the book and has used it herself. Tom can see she needs him but he feels it's more than an infatuation.
At a loss as to what he should do and at Angela's urging he explains what happened to Father Alphonsus, the local parish priest. The priest is sure the book is evil and is determined to help Tom escape from its powers.
Tom doubts his own sanity as his life becomes a series of bizarre experiences, until he loses all control and becomes a person he never imagined he could be.
