The People of Goodies Crossing, mystics and mediums, some charlatans, some not, settled in this quaint old town to ply their trade. But all of them are dabbling dangeroulsy with forces they cannot begin to comprehend... until it is too late. The horror begin quietly enough. A stranger at the door. An unfamiliar hand, reaching. The strange, demonic children, smiling, laughing, crouching hiding. And then the violent storms. Something evil has come to Goode's Crossing. Something against which there is no defense. Something that decends like a hungry shadow lurking beneath the wooden porches, whistling through the trees, to claim the children..

A terrible accident near a village of people with special abilities (talking to spirits, fortune telling, auora reading, etc.) leaves many children and a couple adults dead. What's the worse that can happen? The parents see ghosts of their dead children, the villagers welcome their restless souls into their town..
Written in the simple style of horror writers from the late 80's, easy to follow storyline, credible characters, good detail to create the atmosphere to set the mood
