Baker & Taylor
Twenty years after stalking a woman near Columbus, Ohio, David Kennesey finds himself in a strange mansion where he is invited by a host of mythological characters to commit murder and fulfill his darkest sexual fantasies.

They knew us before we began to walk upright. Shamans called them guardians, mythmakers called them tricksters, pagans called them gods, churchmen called them demons, folklorists called them shape-shifters. Throughout time, they've played many roles and accepted in return whatever we thought was their due: love, hate, fear, worship, condemnation, neglect, oblivion.
Even in modern times, when their existence is doubted or denied, they continue to extend invitations to those who would travel a different road, a road not found on any of our cultural maps. But something is different now. Perceiving us as a threat to life itself, these "others" have begun issuing their invitations with a darker purpose.
In this metaphysical thriller, four people place themselves in the hands of these all but forgotten Others. Venturing on a road that leads across a sinister American landscape hidden from normal view, they find their way to interlocking destinies of death, terror, transcendental rapture, and shattering enlightenment.
