Clarisse Hastings is on holiday when she meets the confident and handsome Jackson. Although the two live on opposites sides of Australia, they enjoy a romantic liaison that lasts only as long as their respective vacations. As Jackson returns to his job as a federal police officer in Canberra, he is resolved that his connection with Clarisse is only a fling—a resolution he later has trouble keeping. As Clarisse returns to Perth, Jackson fills her dreams as she wonders how she could have fallen in love so quickly.

Determined to move on with her life and despite her initial misgivings, Clarisse accepts a date from Lachlan, a seemingly friendly man she meets at an office party. But when she invites him into her flat for a drink, Lachlan transforms into an evil monster who violently rapes her again and again. Left bruised and battered, Clarisse summons help from the police, who soon inform her that Lachlan is believed to be a serial rapist capable of murder. As she is cared for by a dedicated rape crisis team, the police unit puts a plan into action—with the hope that they can find Lachlan before he strikes again.

In this gripping, heartrending tale, a woman robbed of her soul must fight with everything she has to regain her life, learn to love again, and bring a monster to justice.
