Summary
David Binder is a young, successful writer living in Chicago and suffering from writer's block. He stares at the blank page, and the blank page stares back harder. So when his agent suggests maybe a lighter sophomore novel, maybe something genre that they can sell real quick and buy him some more time to pen his magnum opus, he's quick to recall an old ghost story he once heard. With his pregnant wife and his young daughter in toe, he sets out for Tennessee with high hopes of indulging the local lore surrounding Virginia Beale, Faery Queen of the Haunted Dell and whiling away the summer away from life in the city. But as his investigation goes further and further, and the creaking of the floor boards grows louder and louder, the David Binder realizes he's not only endangered himself, but also his wife and daughter
Summary
Writer David Binder researches his next book by taking a lease on a farm house rumored to be the site of nineteenth century hauntings, insanity, and murder and feels himself obssessively drawn into the evil past of the site
