The smell of perversion is as real and pungent as a decaying corpse to psychic Kathy Smith and it is all around her. Paedophiles walk the streets unchallenged, free to prey on the innocent, and now nine children are missing, presumed dead. The list that she is compiling while on sabbatical from her job as a psychologist – cataloguing this evil in the Midlands – is solving nothing. Action is needed.
With the unexpected help of Suri, a Malaysian psychic far more powerful than herself, Kathy embarks on a vigilante mission to annihilate those who have the misfortune to feature on her list. But the closer she gets to the truth about the missing children, the less effective her powers become – blocked, it would seem, by the mysterious daisy skull. On a journey to discover what lies behind the "curtain", Kathy must confront her own past and the obsession that has left her life an empty shell, and defeat a force that is far more evil than she ever could have imagined.
