(Book 20 in the Strange Matter series)
A novel by Johnny Ray Barnes Jr and Marty M Engle
FROM THE BACK COVER: Somebody's knocking. Waylon Burst is afraid of his own shadow. He's convinced that monsters, ghouls, and ghosts lurk around every corner of his hometown of Fairfield. To ensure his own safety, he's become a hermit. He doesn't leave his house unless he has to, and he stays in his room most of the time. Recently, however, Waylon's heard strange noises in his house. He's been trying to locate the source of the disturbances, but none can be found. Until tonight. With his parents out for the evening, only Waylon and his babysitter, Bonnie, are left at home to confront the thing that lies hidden somewhere in the house... Every door they open is a new danger--another piece to the terrifying puzzle they must solve in order to save themselves. With a turn of the knob and the creak of the hinge, Waylon Burst must face what awaits him... Through the doorway to doom!
