An advertisement lured Tom Doherty to the island, offering him a job renovating the old lighthouse and ramshackle buildings. What he didn’t know was that he was the only applicant. None of the locals wanted the job – no one dared. Isolated and alone, Tom soon discovers why. Messages from disembodied voices; ghostly visitations and escalating horrors draw Tom deeper into the island’s evil past-a darkness that forces Tom to unbury the truth and bring demons of his own into the light
