Dan Fox has never been interested in an ordinary life. His love for collecting ancient relics has filled him with an obsessive drive to pursue supernatural power. But when he is considered for membership in the exclusive Mephisto Club, Dan quickly discovers he may be in over his head... As Dan's second membership trial begins, the club sends him to Dorsetshire England, with orders to recover an ancient spider idol. Dan tracks the mysterious object to Shiel Manor, a crumbling old house nestled in the countryside, next to a dark, overgrown maze. But this time, Dan is not the only one seeking to claim the ancient relic. Desperate to prove his genius to an uncaring world, Hugh Rees also has his eyes on the maze. He arms himself with a stolen journal and utters a ritual from within the tome's dusty pages, unleashing an ancient evil. As Dan and the house's beautiful custodian, Natasha, join forces to solve the mystery at hand, they soon realize that they are dealing with a lot more than what they could have ever bargained for. Recovering the idol was meant to be Dan's second trial. But if the deadly creature finds him first, it could be his last...
