FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING SENSATION THOMAS OLDE HEUVELT—a thrilling descent into madness and obsession as the dangers of the outside world are found within.
After a terrible accident high in the Alps, travel journalist Nick Grevers wakes from a coma to find that his climbing buddy, Augustin, is missing and presumed dead. But Nick claims to not remember anything—even whatever horrible event that led to his maimed face and the plastic surgery that leaves him still in bandages and feeling like a B-movie monster.Sam, Nick’s long-suffering boyfriend, wants to be glad that Nick is alive and coming home. But the accident has stirred up terrible memories—and it’s beginning to seem that Sam isn’t just being haunted by his own mistakes or Nick’s own trauma.

Because it turns out that—though Nick was the only body airlifted off that mysterious peak—he didn’t come home alone, after all.

And now, their uninvited guest is awake.
