Description

Melcion, an antidepressant developed by a large pharmaceutical company is found to produce a deadly side effect. This discovery sets off a chain reaction of murder and revenge in Cape May, a quaint, Victorian town on the Jersey seashore. Reminiscent of Victorian London, it provides the perfect setting for a disturbed, young man, who roams the foggy, gaslit streets searching for the meaning of voices in his mind. An unholy alliance is formed between him and Rudy Hoffman, the physician who developed Melcion and was fired when he tried to hide its terrible effects. The similarity of three murders in the area brings the FBI into the case. Special Agent Ryan Berrigan meets Dr. Maggie Emory, the brilliant scientist who discovered the deadly potential of Melcion and, inadvertently, was the cause of Dr. Hoffman's dismissal. Maggie and Ryan work together to solve the murders, but almost lose their lives in a bizarre confrontation in a deserted house on the Jersey Pine Barrens.show more
