Secrets can kill. "You were afraid of my father....That's why you had him murdered. You were of afraid of him, and I'm going to teach you to be afraid of me." Just weeks after his father's horrific death, Matt Hunter confronts the murderous Lucius Creighdor and vows revenge. But battling this vicious foe is treacherous for Matt -- and his steadfast league of friends. Yet without Paul's financial wizardry, Emma's scientic genius, Gabriel's cunning street smarts, and the historical expertise of Narada Chaudhary, Matt knows he will be lost. When Creighdor unleashes a mind-mutilating creature that can control a person's will, Hunter's League must pull together by drawing on their individual strengths, all the time wondering if they've stumbled upon one terrifying secret too many -- and one blood-thirsty monster too much.
