Overview

BCA Special Agent Sullivan Shale has seen his share of violence and death. He's become weathered and haunted by the harsh reality of his career yet continues on despite a crippling personal loss. But when one of the largest penitentiaries in Minnesota calls requesting an investigation into an inmate's brutal death, even his expertise is pushed to the limit.

Singleton Penitentiary, located in the middle of an inhospitable swamp, has become an island amidst a torrential flood. The prisoners are silent, the staff is belligerent, and the murder committed in one of the solitary confinement cells is unimaginable.

Cut off from the outside world and faced with insurmountable odds, Shale must uncover a secret stretching back half a century and race against time to save himself and perhaps all of humanity from an insidious threat, that may not be human.

Editorial Reviews

Kealan Burke
"Joe Hart is one of the most exciting and consistently entertaining horror writers to come along in years. If you haven't yet read his work, I'd advise you to rectify that oversight posthaste. Trust me, you'll be glad you did. Hart's is an old-school sensibility with a modern twist, and anything he writes is well worth reading." - Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy and Kin.

Meet the Author

Joe Hart grew up on a lonely 91 acres of farmland in northern Minnesota and without many playmates or company, began writing when he was 9. His first literary love was Stephen King (and still is)-whose writing shaped his mind into the twisted mass it is now. He published his first poems at age 17 and his first collection of short horror stories at 29. He is currently working on a novel. He lives with his wife and two children in northern Minnesota. Joe loves hearing from readers, feel free to email him at .

    A Left Field Story

    I was a little disappointed with the overall plot, the character's development and lackluster ending. I kept reading on out of hope that the story would pick up but it snowballed into a more incredulous tale. I thought there would be more supernatural qualities--or, what I originally thought it was, a murder mystery. But in the end, it was some scifi and a lukewarm finish with no means to satisfy the hours I spent reading it. It had some ominous and thrills, but this is far from a story I would read again.
