Portraits of the Dead

The greater the evil, the more deadly the game… When Emma awakens in total darkness, she is aware of her nakedness. Injuries. A bed not her own.

What does this predator want from her? Can she outwit the masked man who demands to be called “Master”? Or will he be looking for Venus Seven?
