From the dark imagination of James P. Blaylock comes a chilling tale of the supernatural.
When Peter Travers moves into an old house in a remote canyon to try to separate himself from his old existence, his wish becomes reality...all too literally.
His wife and son vanish and the people of the idyllic rural town begin to relive the horrors of a nightmarish crime committed one windy autumn, sixty years earlier. Against a backdrop of murder and midnight terror, Peter must contend with the abandoned relics of his own past before he can overcome the dark forces that haunt the canyon and the people he loves.
