"That place is evil. Fernwood has always been a house of death."
More than a century of secrets have been locked away in a house abandoned decades ago. Now the McCaslin family comes to the seaside Northern California hamlet of Golden Bay with the promise of a fresh start in a home some say is haunted.
"The people that used to live there are all dead."
"That house puts a lot of people on edge. Some people believe Fernwood is cursed."
"...Every member of the Fernwood family fell victim to the curse. Even people who were close to them died freakish deaths. You see, the curse is like a contagious disease, spreading to anyone who has ever had dealings with the family or comes in contact with that house."
But tragedy extends beyond the overgrown grounds of the stately manor. A body found in the swollen waters of a nearby creek triggers a major murder investigation--the first in over 50 years. Confounding police and shocking locals, the widening probe affects the lives of some of Golden Bay's most prominent citizens--both living and dead.
"I know some secrets, some I shouldn't tell."
