When Rallus quits his FBI job and moves to the mountain town of Fawnskin, California, to get away from it all, he has no clue that rural life will mean falling in love with another mysterious newcomer. He falls hard and fast for Knox Baylor, who's taken an unusual job as a shommerin, a corpse watcher at a funeral home. For Knox, the job should be easy money, even if the hours are long...except that he falls asleep on the job and accidentally releases Mr. Harold Hoxheimer's angry spirit, or dybbuk, which starts creating unholy havoc in Fawnskin. Harold opens all the secret wounds festering under Fawnskin's pretty, postcard exterior. Fawnskin is home to a fake fortune teller who blackmails residents but hides an even more sinister secret. And why do individuals keep dying in the old people's home? Rallus barely has time to deal with these problems when a grizzly murder takes place and a small boy is abducted. As they investigate, Rallus and Knox find that nothing is what it seems in this once-quiet town with the warm and fuzzy name...everybody has a secret, and some are willing to go to deadly lengths to keep them. How can they keep Mr. Hoxheimer's vengeful dybbuk from jumping from one host body to the next? What exactly does he want? And can Rallus and Knox defeat the growing evil with true love?
