Something strange is stirring in Bayou City. Screams in the night. Mutilated animals. The murder of a college student. Barry Shannon wants to know why, and he he wants to know what's happening in the strange house on the edge of town, the one everyone avoids. He should have let well enough alone because it was better never to have found . . . the Keepers of the Beast.
