Long before the Ghostcatcher appeared there was a mild-mannered professor of English Literature at a small private university in North Carolina. His name was T.K. Fleming. He had a beloved friend on the faculty, a man of unique intellect and unfathomable sensibilities . . . even powers. The friend died, but it wasn't that simple. He may have been murdered, . . . or just consumed by his own forbidden passions. As Fleming tries to assemble the broken pieces, the puzzle come together in ways he can hardly comprehend . . . much less believe.
