The small town of Lakeshore was always quiet until the tourist season hit in the winter. That was the only reason for media attention...until now. 10 year old Katie Elkton was a sweet child, in spite of the mental and physical abuse she suffered at the hands of her father. One fateful day Katie was found dead at the bottom of the stairs in the basement with almost all of her bones broken. Her parents disappeared. Some said accident. Some cried foul play.
Years later, a young woman with problems of her own buys the Elkton house. She moves in with her 8 year old son Bentley who suffers from severe allergies and asthma. It appears that Bentley has made a new friend. Katie has come back home...and she wants to play..
The town of Lakeshore lets in no outsiders, so when Deirdre Hallsey sold Jacob Reilly's house to the Elktons, everyone was surprised. Deirdre kept her promise to Jacob by selling it to a family with children. However, an unfortunate accident left Katie Elkton dead on the basement floor. Her death was the catalyst that triggered the true evil that lived beneath the Reilly house.
The house always seemed to have a sinister feel to it that could never be explained. Years after the Elktons abandoned the place, the mayor sold the house to the Haggler family. Then, on a horrific night in May, an evil so sinister overtook Deputy Alana Sachs, killing her and everyone in the house except two, Deirdre Hallsey, who is now a patient in Lakeshore Sanitarium, and her daughter Skye.
The town thought the evil was gone after that night, but when strange things started happening in Lakeshore Sanitarium, people questioned whether the evil was truly gone. Could it be something in the Reilly house? Has the evil followed Deirdre into the Sanitarium? Patients are dying and a little boy is seen lurking in the halls on the fifth floor. Will Deirdre be able to survive? Can the evil be stopped, or will it be too late for the patients in the Sanitarium?
Unanswered questions bring Mr. Singer, who was once Anderson Haggler’s assistant, back to Lakeshore. Can he uncover the deep dark secrets of the house on Sedgewood Drive, or will the evil also claim his life?
The sleepy town of Lakeshore is plagued by evil, revenge, and death. After the gruesome murders at the Sanitarium, Lakeshore began trying to put its pieces back together. The evil that once haunted the house on Sedgewood drive appeared to be gone. Or so they thought.
Make no mistake. Secrets still dwell in the town of Lakeshore.
But secrets have a strange way of revealing themselves at the most inopportune times. When Skye Hallsey’s car turns up on an empty road in the small town of Wake Forest, and video footage surfaces showing little Katie Elkton leaving a gas station, the town is sent spiraling back into the nightmare of evil that claimed so many innocent lives.
Artie Donovan is pulled once again into the wicked malevolence as he tries to find Skye Hallsey. Haunted by whispers and nightmares of the fateful night Deirdre Hallsey was murdered in the Sanitarium, Artie Donovan knows time is running out for Skye.
Will she suffer the same fate as her mother? Can Artie save Skye?
Or will the darkness and evil devour him before he can get to her
