Brett Duncan and his friend James Reed agreed to meet another friend at Tremont University Health Center. Brett loses track of James and then a girl appears and states she is to take Brett to James. Brett is suddenly plunged into a situation of horror and barely escapes with his life. This occasion is the last time Brett sees James Reed.
Brett goes to the police who do not offer much help but Brett was determined not to give up. He realizes that there is some type of ceremonies taking place beneath the University. Brett feels sure that something has happened to James and determines to find the truth.
A police officer takes Brett aside and sends him to see Deswood Graham. Deswood is an ex-police officer who has been concerned for sometime about what he suspects might be going on at the University. Deswood talks his cousin, Kevin Gibson, into coming to town and investigate Reedís disappearance and the activities conducted at Tremont University. Kevin is a reporter at the Indianapolis Tribune and finally agrees to make the trip.
The story that is uncovered is one that is terrifying and unbelievable. Not only are students involved in the horrors but also even some of the faculty is involved. The University is a fascinating mystery that will keep the reader guessing every step of the way.
Jeffrey Leeverís previous book Dark Friday introduced Kevin Gibson and was an excellent read. Each book is a stand-alone but both well worth reading.
