In the wake of the worst storm anyone could remember, strange things started happening in Frankport, Michigan. A teenage boy disappeared. Another was murdered in full view of his friends. And if the evidence was to be believed, Reed Devlin, a retired, decorated Marine-turned-drunk, spent the night with a ghost - a woman who had been reported dead earlier that same evening. In the days that followed, young Skylar Lewis discovered an incredible secret on her new laptop computer. And Reed's old Army buddy was killed by two weird, half-seen things. Something evil had come to Frankport. But for what purpose? And how was a dying town supposed to protect itself against a demon that was more than 10,000 years old?
