Two grieving cousins discover much they did not know about their lost loved one and his role in keeping their town free of the horror that descends upon his death. Bad things, terrible things occur with escalating intensity and once Griffin and Flynn Littleton acknowledge the part they are destined to play, they realize they need all the help they can get. Enter physicist Elsa Maplethorpe, her reporter son Jordan, and ex-husband, Episcopalian priest Jonas, a.k.a. the Right Hand of God. Along with Flynn and Griffin they battle the evil unleashed using the weapon buried deep beneath their cursed Colorado home. But in every battle there are losses, and just as light is never completely extinguished, neither is the dark.
