There were sudden appearances at first that gnawed at the soul of Ben’s home, like sickening blood splatter and chards of mirrors, seductive shadows and wounded cries.  Something invaded his finely balanced lifestyle and threatened his emotional equilibrium. He knew he was at war.

Graphic novelist, Ben Needham wakes up every day braced against something in his house, something that won’t leave. He works hard to create a near-perfect life for the three of them – himself, his daughter, Annie, and their dog, da Vinci. But when these disturbances blow out of control, Ben finds a team of forensic paranormalists who perform an autopsy on Ben’s house. Together they wade into its soulless history of murder and a cataclysmic haunting that redefines where life ends, and death begins. Ben surrenders what’s left of his fragile will to free his home from its terrifying anarchist and courageously opens a door he never knew existed, always asking himself what price he'd pay for truth, justice and unforgettable love.
