As the Caskey family and their town of Perdido rode the crest of prosperty in the 60's, matriarch Elinor had a good reason to be proud of her domain. But slowly, silently, unimaginable horrors were creeping into their midst.
At the height of the revelry, at the peak of chaos, in the fearful silence of blackest night, preternatural horror pounced upon the Caskeys. But still Elinor reigned, until her solemn vow of death came true - in the final horror.
