Does the past ever invade the present, seeking remembrance and justice?After his wife leaves him, Jason Underwood hopes for a semi-reclusive existence in the village of San Toms, located in the central coast of California. But the ghosts of those involved in a brutal, century-old murder in Jasons vintage house will not allow him to hide away. As they repeatedly appear to him, replaying their stories of betrayal and death, Jason finds himself entangled in a new version of that hundred-year-old nightmare.When Jason discovers an old diary that belonged to the murderer of his houses original occupant, his life takes a bizarre turn. As he reads each entry, the journaled events--both the mundane and the murderous--are replayed in present time. When Jason realizes that the diary may be leading toward the death of someone he has come to love, he moves quickly to prevent the inevitable, only to find a sinister twist in the power of the diary.The secrets that unfold in San Toms come together as past and present collide, threatening to tear away everything that Jason has come to love.
