All towns have secrets. Some have demons. Welcome to East Salem. A sleepy town with a history older than America where the supernatural bleeds into the everyday. After a high school girl is found dead in the town park, forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris wants answers. All the suspects are teenagers who were at the party with her the night before—and even though the evidence confirms they were all at the scene of the crime they all woke up the next morning with the same story: no memory whatsoever of the murder.
Former pro-football linebacker—and local celebrity—Tommy Gunderson finds himself drawn to the case. And to Dani—who he last spoke with on their one high school date. Yet his celebrity status opens doors barred to Dani—so they form a reluctant alliance. They soon realize that there’s more to the mystery than murder. And more to the evil they are facing than a mere human killer.
