Masterful, bestselling horror novelist John Saul’s thriller of a small town trapped by the terrible tragedies of the past…
The day that the iron doors of the old mill in Westover, Massachusetts, closed forever is a day that still haunts the sleepy town’s residents. On that fateful day one hundred years ago, eleven people died in a fearsome fire, and since then, no one has dared to revisit the mill or the dark secrets locked inside it.
Now, a member of the once-powerful Sturgess family has aspirations to reopen the mill. Little does Philip Sturgess know that by unlocking the padlock he is also unlocking horrible secrets from the past. There are forces at work that will do their best to see the mill doors stay tightly closed. But as Philip presses forward with his plans, the townspeople will be forced to face the terrible vengeance that waits in the darkest corners of the abandoned mill.
