The master of terror and psychological suspense, John Saul taps into our darkest, most deeply guarded fears in his most gripping novel yet, the terrifying story of an innocent teenager who must confront the cursed sins of the past -- and an evil so corrupting that it threatens to consume his entire world ....Nightmares become reality... and from the fire emerges a malevolent presence.Fifteen-year-old Matt Moore has a loving mother and a caring stepfather, a host of friends, and a growing relationship with the most beautiful girl at school. All signs point to a bright future, until fate intervenes. A sudden fire leaves Matt's senile and troubled grandmother homeless. When she moves in with the family, her ceaseless demands cause unrelieved tension -- and with her comes a shameful secret between her daughters that traps young Matt between a dead aunt who haunts him and his own mother, who seeks redemption for her sister's sins -- and her own.A horrific shadow from the past... and a shocking tragedy in the present.To save himself and those he loves, Matt must eventually face the forces of evil and destruction -- alone.
