Disease is spreading through the streets of Perdido Beach; a devastating, hacking cough that makes the sufferers choke their guts up - literally. For the moment the Darkness has disappeared and the only sign of its power lies in the basement prison where the monster, Drake, is being held. But a new horror is about to infest the FAYZ. Something is growing. Growing inside the unsuspecting victims ... and eating at them from the inside.
The Darkness has been foiled again and the resurrected Drake has been contained. But the streets of Perdido Beach are far from safe. An army of mutants want to take over the town. In a small room of a house near the edge of town Pete lies ill on a bed. In his dreams he continues his battle with the hidden evil that seeks his power.
