Jennifer Novack has just received a disturbing call. Her kid sister, Monica, is on her way home from college when two of her tires suddenly explode. Now she is alone and scared, stranded on the outskirts of Widowfield, a sleepy little town in eastern Pennsylvania.
With Monica’s cell phone about to die, Jennifer agrees to rush to her aid. Not wanting to go it alone, Jennifer recruits the help of the only person she can turn to: her ex-boyfriend, Chris.
Jennifer and Chris make an unlikely team, but what tension they may be feeling towards one another soon fades when they reach the town and realize that Monica is no where to be found. With no one to turn to, Jennifer and Chris embark on their own frantic search. What they find are uncooperative police, shady townsfolk, and a clan of local thugs.
This is the least of their problems. They soon learn that buried deep within the woods is a little known mountain trail that leads to a very old, very secret place. Knowing that this may be their only hope, Jennifer and Chris take the trail, only to discover that they have been led into a den of evil.
Now, in order to survive, they must unravel a small town’s shocking past, a past that just might destroy them all.
“To be chased by people with intentions of harming you would be scary enough. To be caught and kept hidden in an abandoned basement in the middle of nowhere adds a new level of fear. Take a visit to Widowfield and see how you can handle surviving an encounter with some of the townsfolk.” –Amazon.com Reader Feedback
