One morning, Ignatius "Ig" Martin Perrish awakes with a massive hangover. Something that seems more and more common for him these days. Especially since the anniversary for the night his girlfriend and the light of his life, Merrin Williams, was brutally raped and murdered and her disfigured body was tied to a cherry tree, is rapidly approaching. To his own horror, Ig was arrested for the crime. Though the charge against him was dropped, his name was never cleared, and most of the citizens in his hometown still believes that his rich and influential family protected him against his rightfully deserved punishment. Left by most of his friends and held at a distance by his family, Ig has felt trapped in what can only be his own personal hell.

* CompellingVoice: Sort of. Ig can make people do something they already want to do, even if it's something horrible that they've convinced themselves they don't want. However, he can't make people do something they have interest in; Father Mould doesn't want to kill himself, and Eric doesn't want to [[spoiler:not beat up Ig]]. He can also make people forget things but, again, they have to want to forget. [[spoiler:Terry]] thinks that Ig can offer a deal, but the other person has to accept.
