A few months before Vincent and friends become embroiled in the series of deaths from weakness that send shockwaves through society. Freddie, a game planner who hates being tied down by women, meets a new employee who calls herself Catherine, falling madly in love for the first time. At the same time, however, inexplicable incidents begin occurring around him, and he is tormented by nightmares each night in which he frantically climbs walls without end... When the past, betrayals and women converge, what answer awaits him at the end of the labyrinth of reality and dreams?
The second novelisation for Atlus' Catherine, published soon after the first book, again only in Japan. Unlike the novelisation, this is an original novel that features a brand new cast and plot, though some characters from the game do make appearances.
Supposedly contains descriptions of an adult nature, as well as strong language.
