An eccentric federal agent investigates occult activity in a small town.
The idyllic town of Lone Oak is struck by the murder of a young girl. Occult activity is clearly involved. But as Special Agent Llewyn Finch discovers, the town was always rotting underneath the surface. Lone Oak’s sheriff is out of her depth. Between the moonshiners and the local newspaper’s antipathy, Willow Donahue already had a host of problems on her plate. Now a cult is on her doorstep, and Finch is the only one who can help her stop it – if she can learn to trust in him and his abilities. There’s a saying in Lone Oak: evil is a whisper in the wind. But this whisper is everywhere. It’s in the mines. It’s in the woods. It’s in their homes. It’s under the skin.
