A tight-knit, Michigan-based thriller about trust as power, art as disclosure, and how processed souls are poised for mutual destruction.
Suddenly-famous artist Inque and her lawyer husband Michael haven't been married very long, but suddenly, she's acting strangely--leaving her new house in the middle of the night, rubbing white paint into her hair, acutely aware of everything. Michael does what any husband would do--he hires a private investigator to watch from the house opposite. Inque hires a therapist to work through her own strange feelings. And while Michael waits for Inque to get "normal" again, Inque waits for a midnight visitor--and for her past to catch up with her. This time, she might actually be ready--if her carefully constructed plan actually works and doesn't kill her first.
