A tale of ghosts, madness and other strange happenings.

"A strikingly original idea in an area where original ideas are few and far between."
--Douglas Preston, New York Times Bestselling Author of Relic and Gideon's Sword

What would you do if everyone around you went instantly, inexplicably mad?

Welcome to Winslow, Washington, where all anyone expects is another ordinary summer: tourists taking the ghost town tour, locals cooling off in Ruby Creek, the carnival in Prospect Park. Nothing unusual. That's because residents here have always done well at keeping order, keeping secrets and keeping the past buried.

Until now.

First, the animals go strange. Then townsfolk begin losing their minds. And that's when the ghosts come out to haunt.

Inspired by true events. Set in a small town hidden in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The Winslow Incident--a present-day thriller informed by historical accounts of entire villages gone mad. What triggered the mass hysteria of the Salem witch trials? Why did residents of Pont-Saint-Esprit suddenly lose their minds? And how does it feel to be the last sane person in town?
