Parapsychologist Sam Towne believes that ghosts come from the human mind, not from "beyond". To prove his theory, he invites eight volunteers, including skeptical reporter Joanna Cross, to take part in an experiment. In a series of seances they invent "Adam Wyatt," a tragic Revolutionary War hero, and are thrilled when he starts rapping on tables and spelling out messages. But when members of the group begin dying in horrifying ways, it becomes clear that Adam has taken on a strange and dangerous life of his own -- one feeding on their very thoughts and emotions. Now Sam and Joanna must destroy Adam before he destroys everything in their world -- and even the love they have found for each other turns into an endless, terrifying, inescapable nightmare...From cult classic author David Ambrose comes a story based on the true case of an experiment into the paranormal, a story that will change forever the way you feel about...

yourselves?” The answer was without hesitation. “They wouldn't believe us.” “Why not?” Drew and Barry exchanged a look, as though agreeing which of them should answer this. It was Barry who spoke. “We know Sam, and he'd never accept this. He'd find a million reasons to explain it away. That's because he's an intellectual. I mean no disrespect, but people like Sam analyze everything till they can't see the forest for the trees anymore. Me, I'm just a plumber who's read a few books, but I know

She pointed shakily to her apartment. “He's in there.” “Who?” “Ralph Cazaubon.” “What—?” He started for the door, but she pulled him back. “No, wait. Get help.” “There's no time for that…!” Then she realized, “I haven't got the keys. We can't get in.” He thought a moment. “Does the doorman have a set?” She nodded. “Yes.” “Go get them. I'll wait here.” “No, I don't want you to—” “Just do it, please, Joanna.” He held
