30 years ago...

Sixteen-year-old Scott sees his first ghost.

Where is the Chord of Souls? it demands, then abruptly flees, leaving the horror of that fateful day indelibly tattooed on his Scott's young mind.

He will never forget that day. Because the ghost was his grandfather's friend... and his grandfather had murdered his friend just ten days before.

Now...

Thirty years after his grandfather's suicide, Scott is stunned to suddenly receive a letter from the old man which talks of an ancient book of apocalyptic power: The Chord of Souls.

The letter's arrival quickly heralds a deluge of supernatural events that has Scott teetering on the precipice of sanity and salvation: his wife is kidnapped, ghosts besiege his home and his mind, and immortality dons the guise of a beautiful woman...

Scott embarks upon a perilous journey to save his wife, one fraught with horrific danger and soul-shattering temptation. After all, who would not be tempted by the promise of powers beyond understanding... knowledge beyond comprehension... and life everlasting?
