William Lewis is a literary agent. Over the years, he’s been able to perform his duties in the small town of Perry, in Sardis County.
As a literary agent, William has gone over many contracts in his time. He’s signed off on them as a witness, and helped his clients get the best terms that he can.
William is having lunch at Ethel’s Diner in Perry when he’s approached by Raymond Hollingsworth. Hollingsworth has a contract that he’d like William to look over and sign off on as a witness. William agrees to do so.
What William doesn’t know is what Hollingsworth has up his sleeve.
In unearthing her father’s secret past, Lauren Reardon discovered a shocking truth about herself. She is a Child of Endor, a sect of witches who believe they are the guardians of the “thin places”—areas across the globe where evil can seep through the divide between the worlds separating the living and the restless dead. At any time, she can be called upon to close one of these breaches and prevent demons from infiltrating our realm. When Lauren has a disturbing vision of an Oregon forest, she is drawn back to the familiar woods of the misty Pacific Northwest to investigate.
Locals had long whispered about an abandoned logging camp known as Jericho—of the strange disappearances and eerie sounds heard in the woods deep in the night. But these ghost stories only hint at the true evil lurking within the camp’s dilapidated buildings, a primeval malevolence far more terrifying than Lauren’s darkest imaginings. And now, Lauren must face this evil, even if it takes her life . . . even if it costs her soul.
