After the battle with the dryads in Arbortown, retired NYPD detective and crime novelist Frank Lamont is ready to quit his side job as a paranormal investigator. However, when he learns that a straight-laced friend named Ryan Davies was arrested for breaking into an animal shelter to steal drugs, he begins to suspect that something supernatural is afoot. Fearing the worst, he recruits his former colleague biker Jamie Bolton to help him investigate, and the two head up to Arkham to get to the bottom of Davies’ mysterious behavior. Meanwhile, Micky Plutz, a mythology professor and friend of the Davies family, also becomes involved, bringing along his RN neighbor Shaun Pepper. As soon as they meet with Davies, it becomes apparent that some alien force is controlling his actions–but what is it, and how did it gain its power over him? Can this ragtag group of investigators figure out what sinister force is pulling Ryan Davies’ strings before it makes him do something unspeakable? Listen to find out!
