       Additional Information  
      In most ways, Peter Halloran is an average suburbanite, commuting each day from his home in Riverside, Connecticut, to his job in New York City. He lives with a wife he does not love and a son he cannot talk to. But his ordinary life begins to unravel on the day he sees a dead man standing on the train platform. The first sighting is followed by another...and then a third. And soon Halloran is trapped in a bizarre and brutal struggle he cannot begin to comprehend -- as a horrific web of violence and evil emanates from the train station that serves his quiet New England town. Because Riverside is home to dark secrets and lethal mysteries -- and a terror only Peter Halloran can see. Suddenly, one ordinary man is on the frontlines of a war like no other -- and fighting desperately for lives that may already be lost...including his own.
