Cabrini turns out to be a frightening figure, shrouded in mystery. Carolyn is certain his hypnotic eyes have pierced the soul of Beth Mayberry, making her a slave to the satanic rites he has planned.

Barnabas offers to help, but he is already under police suspicion.

News of ghastly murders in the region add to Carolyn's terror — the victim's throats have been ripped open. Everyone suspects Quentin Collins. And somewhere in the shadows Cabrini waits and weaves a spell...
