The first book in the Grays Harbor Series.
Along with his wife and two sons, Curtis Lockwood leaves his
home state of Oregon behind and searches for safety in the cold,
inhospitable atmosphere of Grays Harbor - an area whose residents
have a long history of both guarded seclusion and dark secrets.
Over the past several weeks, he's watched most of the population
of Portland either die mysteriously or disappear without a trace,
causing widespread panic to spread throughout the region. Seeing
the few remaining people leaving town and scattering into the
hills to the east, Curtis hopes that the familiar surroundings
of his childhood home in Cohassett Beach might shield his family
from the chaos happening in the world around them - but even
in a remote cabin, hidden by the ancient forests of the Pacific
Northwest, his family begins to notice strange things happening
around them. They soon discover that the nightmare they've been
hiding from, isn't nearly as terrifying as what awaits them
in the nearby town of Westport.
