It's an ordinary summer. Until the dreams began.
Cheryl Erskine awakens screaming every night; she whispers in her father's ear: "Something bad, Daddy."
Glenn Erskine's worried about his daughter, but as police chief, he's got the whole town to worry about--especially with Jimmy Hale on the loose. The murderer had been too crazy to stand trial--he'd been institutionalized instead. Now he's "cured". And coming home.
Dreams are hard to predict, and harder to control. Cheryl and her family are trapped ... in a dark dream.
