"Cory Brockway arrives in the small college town of Wellington two weeks before the fall semester begins. He finds himself deeply intrigued with a local legend that appears to have been distorted by outlandish assumptions and eccentric misinformation. But one thing is certain: the nearby ghosttown, Silver Spring, is haunted. Cory is witness to the bizarre, ghostly aura guarding its mystifying secrets, and he is lured into a collision course with the past. An unexplainable supremecy compels him to seek out the truth. With help from his new best friend, Buck Paxton, he discovers staggering evidence that could destroy the reputation of a prominent local figure, and could ruin his own academic success as well. Across the dead line embraces the parallel existence of two lives separated by nearly seven decades: Cory, the 1967 college student, obsessed with composing an accurate account of what really happened, and Clancy Crane, the only Silver Spring resident with the courage to remain there after its infernal destruction in 1899. He was the only witness to a mass murder, from which the legend evolved. Cory and Buck Jeopardize their own safey to uncover the vaguely recorded and unrecorded history, bit by mysterious bit. What they discover produces a tangled mind game, and the results could prove deadly"--Page 4 of cover.
