First, it was Joe's friend Vanessa Bender...Then Frank's friend Callie Shaw...And now their own mother. Frank and Joe are the only witnesses to three shocking murders--and no one believes them!
Strange, unspeakable forces are loose in Bayport. Enemies the boys thought long dead have risen like demons to taunt and terrorize them. Now they stand alone in a titanic battle against an awesome, unknown power--a chilling army of evil determined to pursue them into the grave...or to the very edge of madness!"
