Willy Patrick should be ecstatic as she has found love again with wealthy businessman Michael Faber especially since he has moved her into his mini-mansion in Hendersonia, New Jersey. Still the young adult author has some issues for instance she has to fight herself from busting into a warehouse where she feels her dead daughter waits for her. Defeating the compulsion, Willy returns to her new home only to find pictures of her deceased spouse in a box in Michael's study, a room she never entered before.

Stunned, she flees to New York. She enters a Barnes & Noble bookstore where horror author Timothy Underhill is providing a reading. Timothy's life has been unsettled of late since he saw his dead sister's ghost and communicated by email with a being from another dimension. When Timothy sees Willy, he recognizes her as the key person to fight evil waiting for them in the house of a deceased serial killer in their hometown of Millhaven.
