From the back cover...Nothing much ever happened in Thomas Valley, Penn. Just your ordinary sex and violence and other secret sins simmering below a small town's surface. Then one hot bright Saturday it began. The deaths. One after another. Men, women and children. The horror. An evil lrising from the bowels of the earth that only a determined local policeman and a feisty woman doctor suspected and tried to fight. The hell. As the sleepy little town was swallowed up by the ultimate nightmare.
