Special Agent Gallagher of the FBI arrives to a Massachusetts asylum for the criminally insane in search of clues to the disappearance of a well-known cult leader. Yet the answers to the questions that torment him are far from simple: the man he is interviewing, a former Bureau agent, claims to have murdered the cultist to prevent the summoning of a dead god sleeping at the bottom of the ocean.
