In the open air theater of the dark god Dionysus, Letty watches a performance of an ancient Greek tragedy.

Now as the killer cuts a merciless swath across a country in the throes of political instability, Letty herself steps unawares into the murderer's savage spotlight--a light so bright she may not be able to see the dark figure behind it until it is too late
