Everyone says there's no place like home. but I put before you a small southern town that was evacuated and placed on quarantine after a freak power-plant accident. Now the first anniversary of the mishap approaches, and some residents are allowed to pass the National Guard roadblocks and return home. Mount Hop natives Maggie and Jordan are back, but nothing is quite the same. A sinister feeling has taken over. The military are stationed around every corner and have put the damaged power plant under lockdown. As friends and family turn against one another, Maggie and Jordan must discover the truth behind what's happening in Mount Hope. And soon they'll be in the crosshairs of something far more menacing than anyone could have imagined.--from back cover.
