Summary
  • Just cause: A Harvard Law School professor reopens a murder investigation on behalf of a death row inmate who claims he was forced by a sinister lawman to confess to a crime he didn't commit. On the surface, it seems to be a straightforward case of the prisoner's guilt or innocence. But nothing really lies on the surface of this mystery, climaxing in the Florida swamplands
  • Altered states: Research scientist Eddie Jessup believes other states of consciousness are as real as everyday reality. Using sensory deprivation, then adding powerful hallucinogenic drugs, he explores these altered states--and endures experiences that make madness seem a blessing
  • Dead calm: A young yachting couple pick up a stranger drifting at sea and he soon begins to terrorize them
  • The ninth configuration: Somewhere in a distant forest, there is a military installation where mind games are going on that lead to terror
