Can the love of a mother bring back the lost past and overcome the terrifying evil of the present?
Six years ago, Laura McCaffrey's three-year-old daughter Melanie was kidnapped by Laura's estranged husband, Dylan, and seemingly vanished from the face of the earth.
Now, Melanie has been found, a nine-year-old wandering the Los Angeles streets with blank eyes and a secret in her soul she will not or can not reveal. Dylan has been found too - or at least his mangled remains. Melanie is home again.
But can she ever truly be safe - as the floodgates of terror open and the bloody torrent comes pouring through...?
