Publisher's Summary

In 1993 at a top secret facility conducting telekinetic research, something dangerous escaped. Now the government wants it back. Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, is a quiet little tourist town where nothing exciting ever happens. All of that changes when a young woman is found brutally murdered and a local boy vanishes without a trace. Fearful for his safety and led by Keenan Braddock, a clairvoyant haunted by visions of an elusive killer, a group of teenagers set out to find their missing friend and confront an unstoppable enemy.
Now, years later, that same group has returned home for the funeral of a friend. Together they recount the terrifying story of their youth and a hidden secret buried deep within the past.
In a time when young heroes make a stand and face off against the worst of childhood fears, J.L. Davis constructs a haunting thriller where forces converge in a battle of good versus evil, and the clock isn't just ticking. It's about to run out.
