Danny Drake has a problem. He suffers from uncontrollable urges to yell out his darkest, dirtiest secrets to anyone and everyone who happens to be in earshot. During an outburst of secrets on the subway John Constantine over hears a word that catches his interest. Constantine decides to help Danny out with his problem and so follows him home where Danny Drake recounts some details about his life. It seems that his diary, which he had burned years ago, is haunting him. Constantine figures it is because of a ritual Danny performed invoking the demon Triskele. However there is an even deeper, darker secret that Danny has been hiding and time is running out.
