Lucy and her roommate/friend Brynn are driving home to their apartment in San Francisco when an accident happens and they are trapped on a bridge waiting for it to clear out. Unfortunately, Lucy is terrified of bridges. Brynn tries to calm her down by singing in the car, and chatting with her to take her mind off of it. In the middle of their conversation, Brynn starts to freak out out of nowhere. Screaming, she gets out of the car and ends up jumping/falling off of the bridge while trying to get away from whatever invisible thing she seems to be running from.

For homicide detective Frost Easton, this isn’t the first woman who has suffered from a similar psychotic break which resulted in them killing themselves. He’s determined to figure out what (or who) is causing these women to react so violently, so he can prevent it from happening again. His investigations lead him to famous (or infamous, depending on who you ask) psychiatrist Francesca Stein, who specializes in treating severe phobias by changing the memories the patient has that are causing the phobia. All of the victims were patients of hers at one point.

Now, both Frankie and Frost are being stalked and threatened by someone who calls themselves The Night Bird. Who is The Night Bird and why is he after them? You’ll have to read to find out!
