By day, Rachel Matre runs a hip diner in downtown Madison, Wisconsin. By night,
she slips naked into the waters of a lake whose spirits speak to her, caress
her, and take her to a place of indescribable pleasure. But now the machinations
of a greedy developer have summoned another force from the depths- a strange,
beautiful man with a dark agenda. Soon there is a murder by the lake. During the
hunt for the killer, Rachel is pulled into a torturous limbo where all she can
feel is her raging erotic lust- and never a release. A crime, an ancient curse,
and a confluence of thoroughly modern relationships have plunged Rachel into the
ultimate mystery: one whose solution will emerge only out of pain, desire, and a
passion for the most forbidden truth of all.
