When Patrick tries to rid them of the ghostly creature, it takes possession of Dom instead. Patrick realizes that in order to save his brother's life he must befriend this ghost and figure out what it wants and why before time runs out.

Kiernan's beautiful and haunting novel is full of mystery and suspense with continuous plot twists and turns.
