Haunted by Walkers ghostly presence and invaded by nightmarish delusions, Eddys life and reputation also become threatened in her pursuit of Fountains true and horrifying secret that takes her from Florida and Cuba to San Francisco and the gold rush city of Vancouver -- where she must confront THE DEATHLESS.
