The people of Nightshade, California, are dying in their sleep, and 15-year-old warrior Jessica Walsh is determined to find the killer...or killers. Justice isn’t the only thing on Jessica’s mind, however. In fact, some days she’s not sure which is worse - having a creepy clown lurking outside her window or having her rockstar boyfriend’s hot ex-girlfriend back in town. Nightshade is crawling with paranormal people like Jessica...and it’s possible that the anti-paranormal group, the Scourge, is back to get rid of them. Or are the disturbing works of a strange painter somehow at the heart of the mystery? Jessica is losing sleep - but she’s got to figure it out before the night terrors strike again.
