A remote and affluent Maine community, Corpus Christi was untouched by the environmental catastrophe that destroyed the neighboring blue-collar town of Bedford. But all that will change in a heartbeat . . .
The nightmare is awakened when third-grade schoolteacher Lois Larkin takes the children on a field trip to Bedford. There in the abandoned woods, a small, cruel boy unearths an ancient horror-a contagious plague that transforms its victims into something violent, hungry . . . and inhuman.
The long, dark night is just beginning. And all hope must die as the contagion feeds-for the malevolence will not rest until it has devoured every living soul in Corpus Christi . . . and beyond.
