Their tales return time and again to the enigmatic family known as the Dier who lived on Deer Hill in the 1880s. Several waves of murder and destruction in Ross County linked to the presence of the Dier have fixed them in local folklore, and the memory of the family's violent end still haunts the darkened woods and ruined Victorian homes that dot the countryside.
The men and women who became entangled in the horrific and wondrous saga of the Dier must face the repercussions of their encounters with extraordinary forces. For some, the experience confirmed persistent whispers of lingering evil; for others, it was an unforeseen journey into a realm of terror and sublime beauty.
Who-or what-were the Dier, and what was their ultimate fate? The answers to these questions will challenge each participant's convictions, and may hold dire consequences for their futures and that of Ross County itself.

This is the second volume in Montague Whitsel's trilogy about a wierd family called 'the Dier.' [See my review of the first volume!] In this volume, the story jumps back 15 years to 1989, where five central characters have 3 really intense nights with maniacs who have come to steal something (I won't give any more away). This volume is live-action, told in the first person by Geoffrey C. Whittier, and the story really had me jumping at several of points. [See my review of Volume I for more!]
