The murder mystery continues after another body is discovered! The remaining guests on the storm-ravaged island wake from the same eerie nightmare to find that one of them has been the next victim of a brutal killing! But Sarah and Marie-Thérèse are starting to suspect that there may be more than one murderer afoot. Who is the killer, and if they're not discovered, who might they target next?

Two bodies down... how many more to go? A raging storm keeps the group of occult collectors trapped on the island, but some of them appear to be more restless than others. Sarah and Marie-Therése divide and conquer, following the two prime suspects down two different, but equally perilous, paths to danger!
