It's an ordinary summer. Until the dreams began.

Cheryl Erskine awakens screaming every night; she whispers in her father's ear: "Something bad, Daddy."

Glenn Erskine's worried about his daughter, but as police chief, he's got the whole town to worry about—especially with Jimmy Hale on the loose. The murderer had been too crazy to stand trial—he'd been institutionalized instead. Now he's "cured". And coming home.

Dreams are hard to predict, and harder to control. Cheryl and her family are trapped … in a dark dream.
