       Additional Information  
      There are worse places an Ivy Leaguer-desperate to restore a tattered academic career-can pass the mist-shrouded New England autumn of his senior year. There is serenity on the secluded fourth floor of the cavernous stone dormitory, marred only by the occasional echoed footfall on the stairs or muffled voice in the corridor. The atmosphere is ripe for quiet study-until it begins...

    Floorboards creak in seemingly deserted hallways. Phantom whispers stir the silence. Invisible eyes seem to lurk, watching. At last, an enigmatic stranger emerges from the shadows, claiming to be a fellow student. But nobody else can see or hear the presence that seeps in like fog rolling off the Charles River. Nobody else can sense, with growing dread, the terrible truth...

    Decades have passed since the murky accident that claimed the lives of three Adams House residents. But somebody wants to relive-and punish-the sins of the past. Somebody is preying on the dorm's current occupants, even as one of their peers descends slowly into a surreal world where madness meets mayhem; where nothing is certain but the chilling suspicion that what has happened before can-and must-happen once again...
