When a friend asks Alastair Stone to question a disturbed child who's committed a horrific act, Stone has no idea what kind of rabbit hole he's starting down. His investigations uncover more instances of appalling crimes, all committed by people with no history of violence. And other people have turned up missing.
It's not long before Stone crosses paths with Jason Thayer, a young man searching for his runaway sister who might be a victim of the same bizarre affliction. Together, Stone and Jason are embroiled in a network of odd homeless people, strange symbols, a growing conspiracy, and deadly danger. Even if they find Jason's sister in time, there's no way to know if they can help her--and it's soon clear that the problem is a lot worse than they originally suspected.
What do you do when you discover an extradimensional plot that threatens the safety of the entire world, but you can't tell anyone about it because literally anyone on Earth could be part of it?

Interesting story with some strange construction
This didn't feel like an Alastair Stone book He seemed like a secondary character, and honestly not a very interesting one. This could have been a completely stand alone book and I think it would have been better for me. I don't understand the basic construction of the book. The POV from Jason and the interlude device were especially out of place; Jason was fairly annoying in general. I'm definitely not an author, but it wasn't a smooth experience for me.
I much rather enjoyed the first book - I prefer the narrator especially.
This narrator's american accent was a off just enough to be occasionally distracting. It would have been less of an issue if the author had written this with Stone as the protagonist.
Overall I did like the story and enjoyed the narrator's Stone voice. I'm glad I listened to it, but it definitely didn't seem as well constructed as the first one.
