As for the book… Fever Devilin had everything going for him — good friends and a beautiful fiancé. That is until he is killed by an intruder. He doesn’t stay dead though - thanks to an emergency medical team – but slips into a coma for three months. When he comes out of it, there are two things he now knows: that he’s been dreaming about a legendary Paris 20's café and that his would-be killer was after a blue tin box, containing a photo of what Fever believes to be an angel.
Recovering from a long-term coma is no easy task and while Fever drifts in and out of consciousness, a would-be-killer is roaming free and must be found while there’s still time.
