Recently divorced and unemployed, Olivia James must leave her life in LA and move back to her family home in Knoxville, Tennessee. On the night before her move, she receives a phone call from her brother Chris warning her that the man responsible for their sister Emily's disappearance may come after her. The warning doesn't bother her as much as the fact that Chris has been dead for nine weeks. Olivia, her eight-year-old daughter, Teddy, and their dog Winston move into Chris's home. Soon afterwards, mysterious events start occurring, suggesting poltergeist activity. Then the suicides begin. Olivia learns she must pay a horrible price to a creature, known by many names, including the Pied Piper; if she fails, her daughter will mysteriously disappear forever like so many other children have done before her.

From official release/information:

Product Description: In this bone-chilling tale of terror from Shamus Award-winning thriller writer Lynn Hightower, a devoted mother must confront the paranormal forces that have cursed her family.

When Olivia James receives a phone call just after midnight, she recognizes her brother's voice. But there's a problem: her brother has been dead for the past nine weeks. Moving back to her old childhood home in Tennessee -- the place where her brother has just died -- her young daughter Teddy seems troubled, telling her mother that she's being visited by a menacing ghost. When another tragic death occurs and her daughter disappears, Olivia must confront the demonic force that has cursed her family.
