Heat, flame, and darkness swept through the town, devouring lives, and consuming all hope. In the aftermath of the fire, the town of Hinckley rises from the ashes, its people determined to rebuild their lives. But in the shadows, someone is watching, someone is waiting. Someone who knows the secrets the fire laid bare. A rumour spreads of a mysterious figure that haunts the hills. A monster? A ghost, or a memory? An enemy in hiding, or a lost love?
