Rhonda Bennett works at an old folk's home. A new arrival, a Mister Paul Dresser, is suffering from dementia with the onset of Alzheimer's. He is just another resident. A kind, but very sick old man at the end of his life. He claims to be the man who knows the truth. Not just about Houdini, but about his promise of returning from the afterlife. Rhonda doesn't believe him. Who in their right mind would... but there's something strange about that man. He is someone who holds a secret. It is unlike any secret kept by anyone she has ever known.
There is a look in his eyes.
A look she has seen before.
My name is Erela Lawson and I've always had seriously bad luck. No one is ever supposed to actually see their guardian angel, er demon, but as luck or fate would have it, my bad luck came to a head and he was forced to save me. Which most likely went against everything he believed in. In fact, he looked just as horrified as I was when I saw those giant red wings of his. No sweet music, silky white feathers or golden glow here folks. Only I would end up with a tall, dark, tattooed sex-on-a-stick with hellish leathery wings to match. I'll pause so you can all stop being jealous. What the hell is to become of my life now? And what is a Death Mark?
