Summary (From the publisher):

From the publisher:
Something hideous is about to happen to the small town of Shillingham. Why does a madman shoot at the workers tearing down the old gallows at the crossroads? Why are the children drwan to play in its shadow, as if by silent command? What is the eerie, thickening fog that surrounds the village, cutting off the inhabitants from the outside world?

Beneath the ground, something stirs. As the workers continue working and the bulldozers roll on, a dark and unimaginable evil, imprisoned beneath the gallows for centuries, slowly awakes. It is alive. It is powerful and cunning, And it wants revenge.
