Rex Coen is back in his hometown of Boise, Idaho after eight long years away...and the whole country is buzzing about it. Why? He’s infamous. Why? His prison sentence. Why? The bank incident. But seeing his own face on magazine covers, being greeted with hateful verbal abuse and hounded by hordes of paparazzi isn’t exactly the warm welcome he was anticipating. So, in an effort to change his luck, he decides to flee the country in search of a better life. But what he finds...is anything but. Waking up drugged, dazed, and hung by his wrists from a water pipe in a dark basement somewhere in the countryside of Helsinki, Finland, Rex has many questions… Luckily, he’s not alone. Well, not entirely alone. Amidst the horror he faces, and the maddening thoughts racing through his weakened mind, his sanity comes in the form of his Conscience, a personified double, conjured up years ago to help him cope with a disastrous life. Together, Rex and his Conscience must race against time to free themselves from what waits above. And what waits above? A Family…Eight of them, to be exact…with a secret…that they will do whatever it takes to keep.
