Hilton was seven when his grandmother died, and it was a bad time. But it was worse when she died again . . .
Hilton James would have drowned before his ninth birthday if his beloved grandmother hadn't sacrificed her own life to save him - one year after he had discovered her lifeless body lying on the kitchen floor. Now, thirty years later, she is coming to him again - appearing in nightmares more vivid and horrible than anything he has ever experienced.
As a racist, psychotic monster stalks his wife and children, Hilton James is trapped in the Between - unable to separate the real from the surreal, the dream terrors from the waking ones - and must race to solve the mystery before everything he loves slips violently and inalterably away.
