Without jobs, without savings, without hope, the Wiley family has fallen on hard times. Until they hear the story of a little girl who slipped down an abandoned mine. Americans respond with prayers. And cash. Now the Wileys hatch their own desperate plan. But something goes terribly wrong, as their precious daughter Andromeda--scared of shadows, monsters, and most of all, the dark--falls into the darkest place of all.
Years later, she returns home, all grown up and recovered from the incident that made her famous. Beautiful, alluring, Andromeda is coming back to the town where it began. To share with everyone the secrets of a small, dark place--and to show them the evil they have made. . . .
