Frank Black, for the third time in his life, ends up on the receiving end of a series of disturbing Polaroid photographs. This time, however, he begins questioning his own sanity, for the digitally enhanced photos depict the victim of a horrible drowning accident and the face in the Polaroids is his own. Is a ruthless demon seeking to push him over the edge into madness? Frank's painful childhood memories and the FBI's opinions that he is a crazed man make it all the more difficult for him to confront the evil attempting to ruin him.

With Frank Black being held responsible for Barry Baldwin's death at the hands of a Millennium Group assassin, Emma Hollis further distances herself from her former mentor while gaining Millennium Group membership. The Federal Bureau of Investigation dismisses Frank once and for all from its ranks, an act which pulls the Bureau and the Millennium Group closer to each other. Frank, Emma, and Peter engage in angry attacks against each other as the new Ed Cuffle continues to leave a trail of bodies. The battle will end in role reversal for all, an end to things as they once were, and an uncertain future.
