DARK EXPOSURE

1648762511_edited.png

Quinn Hastings should’ve died when she was seventeen. Ten years ago, she survived a kidnapping and escaped a week later with a murderous secret. Now, at twenty-seven, Quinn buries her past by means of driving her 1970 Mustang to photograph every heavy metal concert imaginable in her home of Upstate New York. At concerts, she can forget the past and pretend to be someone normal—someone who isn’t haunted by monstrous visions of figures in black skull masks and doesn’t have homicidal urges.

 

Quinn blames her broken state on Right Path, a mental health facility that’s not as it seems. It is rumored to house an underground operation where teens and young adults are taken, never to be seen again. Quinn was supposed to be their latest victim ten years ago.

 

Upon learning her best friend is going to Right Path, Quinn reluctantly follows her, determined to protect her, and make sure no one suffers at their hands again. Upon arrival, Quinn discovers the program’s methods escalate to include psychological torture. Immersed in the program’s strange, dark culture, she struggles to blend in whilst holding onto her identity, on which her grasp is slipping with each passing day.
