When Uncle Gary mysteriously disappeared, all he left behind were a nightstand and mountains of sawdust. Billy Fyfe, 11, inherits the nightstand, but when hes awakened at night by noises from inside, he decides to take a closer look at it. He discovers a hidden panel that opens to an antique maze of wooden corridors. He and his sister Sophie believe that Uncle Gary is hiding somewhere in the nightstand. He has good reason to hide. The sinister men from the Zobadak Wood Company are prowling the neighborhood looking for him and they will stop at nothing. As Billy, Sophie and their two friends, Chris and Maggie, begin to explore the ancient hallways they discover far more than they expect. But the real surprise is waiting for them when they climb back out and discover just how persistent the Zobadak men are. As logic unravels, and their situation grows desperate, Billy must make a terrifying choice: let the police handle things the conventional way, or escape to the nightstand and try one last time to find Uncle Gary before its too late.
