Patrick Nichols, a former journalist and now author, rents an old house while he writes a book about the former owner, Arthur LaSalle. This was a man with a wild and controversial life and a violent death; a man whose story can revitalise the mentally scarred Patrick. Then in the night, gliding from the shadows she approaches; taking his dreams and his senses, stealing his heart.
The Black Lace Lady comes and comes again, whispering and pleading as he sleeps. ‘The truth, tell the truth’.
