After former journalist Patrick Nichols moves to an old house, he begins writing a book about its former owner, Arthur LaSalle: a man with a wild and controversial life, and a violent death.
His story is the only thing that can revitalise the mentally scarred Patrick. But in the night, gliding from the shadows, something approaches... taking his dreams and his senses, and stealing his heart.
The Black Lace Lady comes, again and again, whispering and pleading as he sleeps.
‘The truth. Tell the truth’.
