Evangeline Harker, Associate Producer on television news magazine The Hour, is sent to Transylvania to scout out a possible story on a notorious Eastern European crime boss named Ion Torgu. When she fails to return her New York office is engulfed in a wave of guilt and recrimination. Then, suddenly, months later, she's found convalescing in a Transylvanian monastery, her memory seemingly scrubbed. But then who has been sending emails in her name? And what do these crates delivered to the office contain? And why does the show's sound system appear to be infected with some strange aural virus? As a very dark Old-World atmosphere deepens in the halls of one of America's most trusted television programmes, its employees are forced to confront a threat beyond their wildest imaginings.
