Zoe Greene, a former investigative journalist turned soap opera magazine writer, is completely caught up in her affair with soap star Warren Clark - and especially excited to be joining him in San Esteban, an idyllic village in central Mexico. Here she plans to spend the most romantic weeks of her life. But from the moment she arrives, something seems unnervingly off about the place and its people - from the bloodtipped spines of the strange indigenous plants to the ominous black crosses that she finds hidden in several homes.Even Zoe's personal life takes an unsettling detour when Warren rekindles a discomforting friendship with another woman - and disappears for long periods of time, leaving Zoe adrift in a town that feels increasingly alien. A town where, only one week earlier, a tourist was discovered dead, his heart ripped from his chest.When more bodies are found, Zoe begins to ask questions. And at even greater risk among the locals, she's finding the answers. They'll shatter everything she believes about the man she loves, about the secrets of San Esteban itself, and about her own fate, which grows darker with each new nightfall.
