The Piper clan emigrated from Scotland and founded the town of Santo
Verde, California. The Gothic Victorian estate built there has housed
the family for generations, and has also become home to an ancient evil
forever linked to the Piper name. . .
As a boy, Rick Piper
discovered he had "the sight." It was supposed to be a family myth, but
Rick could see the greenjacks--the tiny mischievous demons who taunted
him throughout his childhood--and who stole the soul of his twin brother
Robin one Halloween night.
Now a widower with two children of
his own, Rick has returned home to build a new life. He wants to believe
the greenjacks don't exist, that they were a figment of his own
childish fears and the vicious torment he suffered at the hands of his
brother. But he can still see and hear them, and they haven't forgotten
that Rick escaped them so long ago. And this time, they don't just want
Rick. This time they want his children. . .
