BOX DESCRIPTION: A series of grisly murders brings Lara into conflict with a sinister Alchemist from the past, and a secret alliance of powerful individuals shrouded in mystery. At the center of these mysteries are the Obscura Paintings - five 14th century pieces of art that the Alchemist is desperate to repossess. Accused of the murder of her one time mentor, Werner Von Croy, Lara becomes a fugitive on the run. Pursued by the police, she follows the Alchemist into a dark world of blood, betrayal and vengeance where it is up to her to defeat this unholy alliance, and stop them from unleashing their incredible powers on the world.

STORY FROM OFFICIAL WEBSITE: Recent events have cast a shadow over Lara's life. Radically changed after her near-death experience in Egypt, Lara has become harder, darker and less tolerant. Whatever happened there has left its mark and she has withdrawn from contact with anyone from her previous life. No one can get through. She refuses to confirm or deny rumors about time spent among obscure North African tribes, but whatever happened after Egypt has caused her to become almost a recluse since her return. The dark memories that haunt her remain locked inside. And no one risks getting close enough to ask.
