A terrible accident robbed Danaë of her life, but not by killing her. Instead, it transformed her into an angel of mercy, cursed to be unseen by the entire world, with one exception: the dying.
Now, she is pulled by invisible threads which lead her to murders that haven't yet taken place, or accidents that are about to happen, heart attacks that are only pulse beats away, and she waits for the moment when death descends, in order to soothe and calm the terror and pain of the dying's passing into the beyond.
The loneliness is destroying her.
Things are about to change for Danaë, however. She's found someone who knows she exists, who can feel her presence, and wants to free her from her solitude and share his life with her.
The only problem is that he has a habit of collecting women, and when he's done with them, he buries them in shallow graves in the desert.
The one living person in the world who can see her, and he's a serial killer.
Now Danaë must put herself at risk in an attempt to put an end to the madman's rampage, before he finds a way to take not only her own life, but her humanity as well.
There are things in this world worse than loneliness.
Like a hand over your mouth, and the cold glitter of candlelight reflected on the knife's blade aiming at your heart...
