A city girl awakens to a nightmare of evil... Seventeen-year-old Emily Jordan ran with the wrong crowd in San Francisco -- and got into trouble with the law. Now she's been banished to tiny Blackburn County, Wisconsin, to perform community service at the Hamilton Home for the Aged.
But Emily is desperately afraid. Something is dreadfully wrong at the Hamilton Home and something sinister hangs over Blackburn County. The elderly residents whisper they are being held prisoner, and there are horrifying tales of young girls vanishing without a trace. Are these just the ramblings of old people... or the seeds of a chilly conspiracy?
Soon Emily will come to know the strange powers that are her gift -- powers that will draw her deeper into the wicked web of destruction that has haunted Blackburn County for centuries... and bring her face-to-face with the most terrifying kind of evil.
