In Lodestar, California, the Gold Rush is never over. Once a thriving gold town, their history is recalled every year as a swarm of tourists move in to pan for gold, drink old fashioned whiskey, and watch the small parade on Labor Day weekend. But the celebration isn't what Barry Cordell came here for. He came to get away from the world, to forget his days as one of baseball's greats and the freak accident that robbed him of the game forever. And Dana Bowen certainly didn't come as a tourist. She took the job as town librarian to escape an even darker past and the memories that still cripple her. Young Billy Grider doesn't know any life but the drunken rhythm of the small town, raised there by his father, Ray Grider, to know the forest like the back of his hand, and to keep secrets when secrets are necessary.It's his father who changes things, who ignores the legends that most people have forgotten anyway, and brings history hauntingly into the present. When a host of spirits bent on vengeance rise from their burial ground over a century after their brutal murder, it will take all the faith and fortitude of these unlikely few to halt the bloodbath that follows.
