As the sound of the villainous men’s footsteps grow dimmer and dimmer, the silence envelopes Mag and her friend. The dark is absolute. Mag fights down her fear. She has heard the talk of anyone who has ever gone caving—what happens when they lose their light. Her only hope is that Melinda will find a way to rescue them.
Melinda escapes the dark passages of the cavern and runs down the lake shore looking for reinforcements to help rescue her friends. She certainly doesn’t expect to land in this kind of danger when her parents drag her and her four aggravating brothers to the Ozarks. Indeed, far from her friends back east, Melinda fears a long, drawn out summer vacation.
Then she meets Mag who introduces her to all the things summer has to offer in her neck of the woods—exploring the lake in her rowboat, swimming and camping on the beach, hiding out in a secret tunnel of trees.
Soon, the two girls begin to notice strange goings-on: lights at night inside an old abandoned mansion; strange men appearing in unexpected places; and a rash of petty pranks and thefts that wreak havoc on the peaceful community. In the midst of it all, Melinda starts seeing a ghost. Who is this ghost and what does he want?
Events take an even darker turn when the intrepid duo discover the mouth of a vast land cave hidden just beneath the surface of the lake…
