David Hearse doesn't exist. He's so high up the intel ladder that if our enemies knew what he knew, we'd all be compromised. He protects the matriarch, code name the Queen. His code name is Bogeyman, the shadow without form, the one who fuels nightmares.
Now homeless, he's living in a basement, but he's a snoop. It's his ingrained nature to spy, to uncover secrets, and he finds all of Carly's scars and hidden traumas. She hides it behind a sunny smile and a spry walk, but she's hurting. What she cannot anticipate is that the god at her door is living under her floor. He is Carly's nemesis, she just never knew it.
Some secrets are best disclosed in the final breath. True love is sacrifice.
