Kathy Klein is at a crossroads in her life when she gets news her estranged mother passed away. She returns to Pillerton, the town she left two decades previous, planning to stay just long enough to dispose of her mother's personal effects. When she learns she is the rightful heir to a valuable property, but she'll have to fight a powerful cult to get it, it seems her stay will be longer than intended. A promising romance with her high school boyfriend is another reason to stay. But being in the old house stirs long-repressed memories, and they're not happy ones. Pillerton is a tangled knot of evil and the house is the center of the knot. She escaped once. Can she do it again?
