Going to Cabin Green alone after the death of his fiancée was Ben’s first mistake. His second mistake was tempting fate by saying, “There’s no such thing as an evil building.” Now he’s caught in a nightmare of his own making deep in the woods of Northern Michigan. Even worse, a family history of mental illness makes it impossible for him to know if the ghosts haunting the cabin are real or all in his head.

This modern Gothic horror story takes the reader directly into Ben’s hellish experience. Is he crazy? Is a ghost haunting him? The only way to find out is to make it to the end of this deep, dark thrill ride that’s filled with more twists than a roller coaster.

Or do they have something to do with the gruesome serial murders that begin to plague her town?

Anna will need to piece the clues together despite many obstacles, including the disbelief of the FBI and her friends. Making things even more complicated is her daily struggle with fibromyalgia, along with a secret past that threatens to completely destroy her credibility. Is she on the right track or is the entire thing a figment of her overactive imagination?
