The entity is ancient. It has taken form before, in other places, other guises.
This time the place is Buffalo. The form is that of a magnificent woman...created from the dreams of a child.
The eternal hunger is immense. The entity must feed. And its prey is human.
Psychic detective Ryerson Biergarten is appalled at the savagery of the first killings. Far worse lies ahead, for the detective as well as the city. He is falling in love with a wonderful woman - but Joan will die - unless he can stop the Devouring.
