A tale of hauntings, madness and other strange happenings in the remote mountain hamlet of Winslow, Washington during the summer of 2010.
When a mysterious plague of madness strikes, young Hazel Winslow is stunned as the people she has known all her life become sudden strangers. Her brainsick father, the sheriff, takes to the woods to hunt a creature of his wild imagining. Her boyfriend Sean Adair disappears with his own delusions and guilt. Ghosts storm her grandmother's neglected mansion. And Hazel—terrified of falling ill and losing her mind too—watches the entire town unravel around her.
Hazel is soon trapped in a world where hysteria and history collide, where the dead demand justice from the living and insist that their stories finally be told. Was Hawkin Rhone's banishment warranted or unjust? Was death by Sean Adair's hand self-defense or murder?
Hazel searches for Sean in a once familiar landscape turned surreal—and dangerous. Sean had killed to protect her, so now she must protect him. But how can she protect Sean when Hawkin Rhone won't stay in his grave?
“A strikingly original idea”—Douglas Preston, New York Times Bestselling Author
“An entertaining small town supernatural thriller. The fun in the tale is following stunned Hazel as her family, friends and neighbors go insane leaving her as the last one standing.”—Merry Genre Go Round Reviews
