After landing in the hospital after a bad breakup and an ensuing drug-and-alcohol binge, college student Jake Chapman is given two options: rehab, or spend the summer at his dying grandmother's decaying home in rural Alabama. The choice is obvious.

His grandmother's land has been in Jake's family since the early nineteenth century; the ruins of the old plantation house are a short walk through the woods behind her home. An archaeological team is excavating the ruins, looking for evidence to prove an old family legend--and there's a meth lab just over the ridge.

Once Jake is there, he begins having strange experiences--flashes of memory, inexplicable emotions--that he can't explain, and he keeps seeing something strange out in the woods. As he explores his family history, he uncovers some dark secrets someone --or something--is willing to kill to keep hidden.
