Kit's family moves to Stoneygate -- an old coal-mining town where his family has lived for generations -- to be near his ailing grandfather. Here, Kit is invited by an odd neighbor boy to play a game called Death. The game -- and the town's haunted history -- get under Kit's skin... and the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur.This multi-generational tale is engrossing and chilling.
