A deserted home. A mysterious man. Will a decades-old murder spree return, even bloodier than before?
Fourteen-year-old Kit wishes his mother had never died. Feeling lost after moving to London, his loneliness turns to fright when he spots an abandoned house that makes his skin crawl. And after he’s scared away by a sinister man, he ditches class, unable to shake the image of the creepy guy’s haunting stare…
Worried the guy is a psycho teacher out to bust him, Kit does some digging but finds no trace of the man in school records. Instead, he stumbles across a farfetched connection to a string of grisly events in the 1970s. And the teen continues to doubt his sanity when he hears voices, has unexplainable visions, and fears danger lurks right around the corner.
Can Kit solve a frightening puzzle before a bloody past rears its ugly head?
