What would you risk to save a patient? To save a friend?
Jackson feels a cold, dead wind blow through the houses of his elderly massage patients. That night, they die. Is his obsession with patterns playing tricks on him? Or is it murder?
Wendy's new home care job is a limitless source of patients who need her mercies. No one has ever seen the special nature of her work in the night - until now. She's tired of moving. Does she really have to run again?
Their paths spiral closer. Neither can let the other go. When Wendy targets his friends Jackson has to risk his career and his sanity, accept his obsession and use the patterns - or lose everything to the night nurse.
