In The Lotos Effect, Linus Scott is a General Practitioner dealing with the normal range of ailments when he is called to the home of a young woman struggling with a recurring nightmare. But after a second teenager independently reports the same dream, something happens which moves events into a more sinister dimension.
A man called Linus Scott, a woman called Alice Pyper and a remote East Coast village called Ait - these are the only ingredients of this returning series which remain constant. In all other respects, each story from the Chronicles of Ait is discrete from the others, though the prevailing mood is always one of mystery.
Linus Scott begins to investigate the circumstances surrounding Charlene's mysterious death.
