A frail old man who ritually mutilates himself. A hermit hag who finally emerges from her den. The opportunity to escape an unhappy home life and delve into a small town mystery: how could Davis Halden resist? It is 1957 when young Davis sees something he wasn’t meant to see. The vision is disturbing. He cannot shake it from his thoughts. As Davis is pulled into a web of long-held secrets, he enlists the help of his older sister to unravel the clues. What they discover will have life-changing consequences for those whom Davis holds dear.
