More than memories await Patricia when she returns to the quiet backwoods town where she grew up. A woman strangled half to death and buried alive. Children who scamper off to play, never to return. Men and women strung up and butchered for sport. Corpses dug up, and bodies found with parts missing. All these greet Patricia. All these and more …
Something from the darkest heart of the night is stalking her, while the town itself seems cursed by a nameless evil. Lust-filled dreams fuel deadly obsessions, the bodies pile up, and the blood flows. Black secrets are revealed and nightmares live in … the Backwoods.
