San Diego Police Officer Miriam Weinstein has been marked by Satan. The Beast Master has returned, and he has taken up residence in a cavern below the cross on Soledad Mountain. The Devil needs to wed a human bride to fulfill the prophecy of the Second Century Luciferians.
Detective Miriam Weinstein, graduate of UCLA’s School of Parapsychology, solves cases using her psychic powers. With the help of her partner and fellow psychic, Sergeant James Duvalier, the duo attempts to solve the strange murders that are taking place all over San Diego.
Will Satan rule once more? Will he have his human bride? Only one woman has the answer, and she is coming nearer to the cave of all our fears . . . fearful of her past . . . fearful of her future . . . and fearful of the hiding beast inside us all!
