“My instincts told me to run, to pass him off to somebody else, but everyone has a dark side, and mine wanted to play.”
Emma Black is an ordinary psychiatrist with extraordinary fantasies. As a rational woman, she knows these fantasies are best kept in her head. However, her latest client challenges her rationality in a very dangerous way.
Matthew Smith has a dark side that makes the far side of the moon look like a halogen lamp. He is fuelled by fury, hatred, and a lifetime of loathing. His entire past has been defined by the spite of women, and he wants revenge.
He has been watching Emma since their very first encounter all those years ago. She will be his demise; his wicked pleasure, and his road to absolution. Or so he thinks.
