About the Book:
To most people it's just a large house, old and a bit run-down.

To the Kellar family it's a new start, a chance to wipe out the painful past and begin again.

But soon it will become a living nightmare.

The terrors begin before the Kellars have even finished unpacking.

Who are the mysterious children playing on the rusty, vine-covered swing set in the backyard?

Who is the figure sitting in the dark corner of the bedroom at night?

Who—or what—waits in the basement?

They are the dead and they cannot rest. Horror stalks the halls of the Kellar house. And the secrets of the past are reaching from beyond the grave to destroy the living...
