Jimmy Miles doesn't sleep. Perfect for a private investigator. The night belongs to him and to a restless few with secrets of their own - like the woman he's tailing to San Francisco. Little does Jimmy realize that she's not trying to outrun him. In fact, she's luring him there, into the shadows of his own past - and a love affair that became a tragic obsession.
Her name is Lucy, and she is as ethereal as the descending fog. Her connection to Jimmy lies with a strange group called the Sailors. Jimmy knows all about them. They're one of the things that keep him up at night. Jimmy is about to plunge into a mystery that will force him to confront a rash of inexplicable murders, the strange truth about Lucy - and the lies of the past, which are far less frightening than the truth.
