One frustrated private investigator, one hot-headed teenage girl, and one geeky pyrotechnician lost whilst on his way to a sci-fi convention ... unlikely saviours?

When private investigator Gregg Pieroni goes to the small town of Martinsville to follow a lead given to him by a psychic -a lead telling him the whereabouts of nine missing teenage girls- he stumbles across a secret that’s been hidden from the world for the past seventy years. A secret so surreal, it has him questioning his own beliefs, not to mention his sanity.

When Gregg discovers what the repercussions of uncovering that secret mean for him, he realises he can no longer leave Martinsville. Never again will he see his family or friends, or have the life he lived and loved only yesterday. And with every resident in town wanting him dead -including their maniacal cop- will one storm-sieged night be enough time for him to find and rescue those missing girls?
