Briggs is an ambitious student of neurology at Columbia. Maybe a little too ambitious.... His ideas about consciousness take a turn that's very sick and twisted when he meets the Old Man, Kirkyard, a neighbor at Apartment H and a former, disgraced researcher at Columbia.
Kirkyard's grizzly WWII-derived work got him kicked out of the university (and got a few people killed too) yet Briggs sells his soul to get access to the Old Man's laboratory and the fame it promises to bring.
When Kirkyard restarts a twenty-year-old experiment that threatens to destroy Brigg's life is it too late to escape from the business of Apartment H?
