Lou Collins has sacrificed his personal life in pursuit of the truth, yet his work is regarded as fiction.

Bridgette Collins uses her knowledge to get ahead, and further her career at the expense of humanity. All are connected, and all will fall victim to the Blood Lights.
Nowhere is a vast labyrinth beneath the ground of Indiana, home to many children who only know darkness. Unbeknownst to them, they are property of artist Thomas Krieg, and are the living embodiment of his newest masterpiece. McPherson is a fan, and his only wish is to view Krieg's work first-hand. Signing up for the opportunity of a lifetime, McPherson gets more than he bargained for when he meets another artist, the mysterious Mister No One.
